What's It Like Being Trapped In Quicksand?

Real quicksand is difficult to get out of, but it doesn't quite suck people under the way you think. The combination of sand and water forms a dense and wet substance that cannot support the weight that sand alone can uphold. If you ever find yourself in quicksand, it is best to try to sit or lie down on the sand (and of course yell for help).
