Cairo: A mysterious sinkhole in the sea is considered one of the natural wonders of the world. For some it is a sight of enchanting beauty while for some unfamiliar tourists this sinkhole is another name for Death. The 120-meter-deep sinkhole has been claimed to have killed hundreds of people over the years.
- The ‘cursed’ bluehole is in the Red Sea, taking the lives of hundreds of people
- It is believed that the bodies of the divers have sunk even today.
- According to local fishermen, the girl’s soul is hovering
The Blue Hole in the Red Sea off the coast of Egypt is also nicknamed the ‘Divers Cemetery’. It is believed that there are still many bodies at its bottom that have not been found, such as the bodies of climbers killed on Everest. Its depth and distinctive structure include a 26-meter long tunnel, often leading to nitrogen narcosis, a condition that results from the inhalation of certain gases under high pressure in which the victim feels confused. Many people fall into its depths and lose their lives as a result. The bodies of two young Irish divers were found in Blue Hole in 1997. The two bodies were connected to each other. One is believed to have grabbed the other in panic and pulled his partner down with him. A stone was placed on the beach in memory of the couple, with dozens of stones present. This is why many people call it a ‘graveyard’.
The most famous story related to Blue Hole is ‘Spirit of a Girl Hovering over the Sinkhole’. Yuri is an Israeli-Russian man who captured his last moments in 2000 on a camera mounted on his helmet. The footage is still available on online platforms and is a warning to others. According to local fishermen, the deaths are attributed to the centuries-old curse. It is said that this place is haunted by the soul of a girl who gave her life by drowning in it to avoid marriage.
