V8 Land-Cruiser in Saudi falls down an old abandoned 60m desert well In areas where there is fresh water under ground the locals dig wells and support the sides with concrete and stones to keep the sand from falling back in to the well. Some of these wells are up to a 100 meters deep. This particular one was 60 meters deep and 4 meters wide, and located outside the small town of Riyadh in the center of the Saudi desert. These guys went out in the desert for a bit of 4X4 fun on a Thursday when one of them drove into the well and dropped 60 meters to the bottom with his V8 Cruiser. Rescue workers could retrieve the car, and the driver had a mild concussion from hitting his head unexpectedly against the wind screen. Its hard to believe he is alive after this mishap, and even luckier that somebody saw him disappearing into that hole! You'd think that they'd at least put up a flag or some other indication to let people know there is a 100 m deep hole there in that nothingness?
