GMA fans feared for the safety of meteorologist Ginger Zee after seeing her sink in what appeared to be quicksand during Thursday’s show.
The chilling moment came as the TV personality was reporting from Lake Mead in Nevada.
Standing at Lake Mead, Ginger reported live on Good Morning America on Thursday’s show all about the incredibly low water levels there.
Soon the show switched to a pre-recorded package that showed the weatherman venturing all over the area, showing how dry it was.
At one point, she briefly got stuck in what felt like quicksand and told producers, “I could use some help!”
She had to use her GoPro stick to help herself out.
On Twitter, Ginger shared an in-depth look at her issues in this creepy environment.
Dressed in a purple tank top and jeans, she was knee-deep in the sucked mud.
Eventually, she was able to free herself with one foot but the other remained for a bit.
“Maybe I should get out of here,” she said, stepping with her free foot, only for it to get stuck again and the other to be released.

The clip ended with her just staring at her cameraman and laughing as she continued to try to get out of the sticky situation.
“It’s not ALL dry at Lake Mead,” she captioned the clip, along with some laughing emojis.
Ginger added, “@DanManWX @SamWnek – watch me get stuck in the mud – still doing whatever it takes to get the shot.”
The night before, she had shared a photo of her boots covered in mud, writing, “Did a bit of a trek to and into Lake Mead today… can’t wait to tell you the story tomorrow on GMA.
After watching the chilling video, fans shared their fear for the meteorologist.
A spectator told him: “Be careful not to hurt yourself. Excellent work always.
A second wrote: “Quicksand sucks, literally, glad you’re safe!
A third commented: “Quicksand!! Our worst fear as a kid has finally arrived!
“The quicksand scare of 80s kids finally hits,” another agreed.
Others begged her to “please stay safe!”
Ginger’s latest TV report comes after she recently took to Twitter to call out a troll who made an inappropriate remark about her body.
After the meteorologist spoke about climate change on World News Tonight, she said she expected a blowback on science.
She was shocked to see a tweet calling out not the information she was sharing, but rather her physique.
The troll tweeted: “In favor of America and the fans of @ABC and @abcnews..can I PLEASE buy you a bra so we don’t get bombarded by your two quintessential examples again of DROOP? #it’s not just a dog.”
The Twitter user compared Ginger’s breasts to Droopy the dog, the famous cartoon character with the notoriously droopy face first voiced by Bill Thompson.
In response to the internet bully, Ginger shared, “Omg I came to Twitter after my world news tonight was about climate change thinking I’d have tweets to navigate from science to to share.”
Despite her desire to educate, Ginger shook her proverbial head with a wide-eyed emoji, a laughing and crying face, and even a playful wink after her tweet ended: “but no, that’s what I see first.”
In addition to spending time on GMA and World News Tonight, Ginger also recently appeared on The View.
With permanent co-hosts Joy Behar and Sara Haines both absent from the show last week, Ginger joined as a guest co-host, and fans showered the 41-year-old with praise.
One fan lobbied for the GMA star to join The View permanently, writing, “Loved you on The View, Ginger.
“You should become a new cast member!”
