Wonder if it comes back up somewhere or just disappears into the earth .




The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is asking anyone floating the Spring River in Fulton County to avoid the area near Saddler Falls. A sinkhole has opened below the falls near Dead Man's Curve. Around noon Saturday, the resulting whirlpool was the location of a fatal boating accident. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Fulton County, along with the AGFC, have installed buoys and roped off the area where the whirlpool is located. The river is still open, but the barricaded area should not be breached. Engineers will be on site this week to assess the area and look for a solution

Makes for a very dangerous situation. A man got trapped underneath his kayak and lost his life because of it.

Land owner that butts up to this whirlpool says it empies back into the river a few yards down stream and that AGF is looking a TNTing the hole to make it collapse

Yep, saw a video yesterday where it comes out just below the falls.
