National Geographic Cameraman Films Being Swallowed by Giant Dust Storm

National Geographic cameraman Bob Poole was in Mali searching for elephants when he and his team were engulfed by a gigantic sandstorm that spanned the horizon. The sandstorm is so massive that it blocks out the sun for four hours. Like any good cameraman, Poole keeps his camera rolling during the whole ordeal, capturing amazing footage of what it’s like to be eaten by a dust storm.

    Thats intense. It must have taken some guts to keep filming rather that to scamper back to the car!
