    at first i thought that it was some kind of water system like near a dam or something. but now i'm thinking its gotta be a sinkhole, those ice chunks it kept pulling down were huge and the water pressure must have been enough to pull it down into whatevers down there. freaky though.

    i'm thinking most of those giant chunks of ice got broken before going down... but i agree the suction must be strong in this, im wondering how deep the water is where the hole is...

    the amount of pull and the strong suction, combined with length of time the water was draining down and the size of the whirlpool indicate that it's probably either pretty deep or that theres some out flow once the water goes down it. there's some kind of empty space down there for sure. and looking at it you can see the some ice sheets go down before they reach the whirlpool. my guess is that it's at a pretty decent depth probably between 5 and 15 ft? possibly more but def not less. i'm surprised it didn't clog up after that big chunk got there and a couple times i think i saw dirt get kicked up when a bigger ice chunk got sucked in so i'm guessing sink hole of some sort and depth of 7 ft. no idea if i'm right or even being logical but it's the best i can draw without knowing much on whirlpools lol

    there was a related video on here about a lake that changed from fresh to saltwater, oil drill hit a salt mine shaft and flooded the entire mine and sucked down 11 barges, numerous houses and trees. i bet this one started out a small hole into a cave(sinkhole) and widened as it went... that giant ice platform was sweet though, the hole disappeared then all of a sudden, CHOOM! it's back!
