Will quicksand potentially kill you if you are stuck in it? You bet it will, depending on weather, rising tide, or heat. If you are knee deep or less you can get out with some struggle. For individuals that get in thigh deep to waist you are in serious trouble and will likely hold you indefiently unless you are attached to rope or otherwise getting help. Quicksand is very dangerous and should be avoided. This video shows you a small sample of how and what it looks like as well as the powerful pull and sinking of the body with very little movement and struggle.
Deadly quicksand can hold you and then the elements can take you down. See demonstration in quicksand filmed 720p HD in quick sinking sand in Southern Utah following a flash flood on the Virgin River flowing out of Zion National Park.
