The moment a 70-meter (230 feet) glacier crumbled and crashed was caught on camera last week.

The Perito Moreno Glacier – known as the "White Giant" – is found in Los Glaciares National Park, deep into southwest Argentina. According to Reuters, the glacier drops huge chunks of its ice around every four years, usually around February and March.
