VIDEO: Glacier collapse rocks tourist boat

Panic ensued when a huge glacier disintegrated next to a tour boat in Alaska.

The boat was taking tourists through the Tracy Arm Fjord, a deep fjord over 30 miles long in the Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness in Alaska.

When a large chunk of ice fell off the side of a nearby glacier there was panic aboard the tourist boat and one woman reportedly broke her leg.

Apart from the dangers of falling ice, collapsing icebergs may also cause tidal waves that can tip small boats over.
