Evolution in Action at Bathtub Spring

Turkey Diver

In 1990, five college students were staying at a laid-back, rural resort on the banks of north-central Florida’s Suwannee River. One afternoon they decided to take canoes up river to scout out potential dive sites. They soon discovered an outflowing of water on the opposite bank, known locally as Bathtub Spring. Excited by their find, the group beached the canoes and hiked inland to see what else might be in the immediate area. They soon came across a deep sinkhole, which they assumed connected with the spring, less than 200 feet away. Blinded by their eagerness to explore, little did two of these divers know they had just hours to live.
