A man on vacation at a popular North Carolina beach was killed when a sand tunnel he dug caved in on him. David Frasier, 49, of Fredericksburg, Virginia was vacationing with his family on Cape Hatteras beach.

According to reports, Frasier dug two holes approximately six feet deep. He climbed into one of the holes and was attempting to dig a tunnel connecting them when five to six feet of sand fell on in, burying him alive.

It took family members and other beach goers nearly 15 minutes to dig Frasier out of the sand. A nurse who happened to be on the beach administered CPR but sadly, he died at the scene.

Park rangers are cautioning vacationers to avoid digging holes more than knee deep.

    Sand is unstable, unpredictable material. It is fine-grained, digging someone out of it is nearly impossible once it collapses, and it is so dense that oxygen cannot pass through it down to you if you are buried underneath it. Does it really require much thought or intelligence to figure out you SHOULD NOT dig down underneath and tunnel YOURSELF under it?
