On the first day of 2015, a young snowmobiler, 13, was swallowed by a sinkhole near Logan, Utah.

The incident occurred in the Peter Sinks area, a region popular for snowmobiling and for its large crevasses.

The snowmobile was bent in half at the bottom of the hole. Luckily, the driver was wearing his helmet, as the boy hit pretty hard against the bottom of the hole.

Normally, sinkholes are marked in the area. You just have to slalom around. But officials hadn’t marked the cavities yet this season.
