Man buries self too deep at beach

A member of the Austrian Olympic swim team buried himself in the sand, then it took 60 rescuers two hours to safely dig him out, SunSentinel.com reports.

Jakub Maly, 19, spent the day at the beach in Pompano Beach digging a hole that was 7 feel deep.

When he jumped into the hole - as a joke, his friends said - the sand collapsed, burying him up to his neck. He was hospitalized overnight but released the next day.
