Although a popular spot for local kids to dive in on a dare, Jacob's well gets scarier the deeper down you go. A famous cave diving spot in Texas, this random tunnel in the ground goes straight down for about 70 feet before opening up to a massive underwater tunnel system.
The water is so cold down there that bodies have been found from the 1970s, perfectly preserved.If your oxygen fails you, you get caught on a cord, or you just become disoriented in all the pebbles and dust that can swarm through in the water -- you are in for a slow and lonely death. A safety grate that was recently installed was cut open, and replaced with a sign that reads: "You can't keep us out!"
Well has very dangerous underwater caves – at least eight divers were killed while exploring the bottom chambers.
