Extreme water receding at Rushikonda Beach, one of the most popular beach of India, panic beachgoers.

According to fishermen, the ocean has receded as a result of the recent lunar eclipse, thereby, exposing the submerged pits and other material underneath. Officials said the tidal phenomenon and the impact of the local winds produced the strong ocean receding.

This is now a worldwide phenomenon with ocean receding reported lately in Venice, Italy and Balandra Beach, Mexico.
