A shocking video has been making rounds online on July 10, 2021, which shows a woman, whose back is turned towards the camera, twerking at the edge of a boat, where a group of people seems to be having a summer party. Moments later, she can be seen slipping and falling off the edge of the boat, directly into the water, which happens to be none other than the infamous Lake Lanier. The video has gone viral and the incident is being dubbed as the revival of the curse of Lake Lanier. 

The video sparked a multitude of reactions from Twitter users, who are reaffirming how every time Lake Lanier is trending, it always turns out to be something bad. About a month ago, on June 3, a boat caught fire on Lake Lanier risking the lives of four passengers, including two minors. Two of the adult passengers sustained burn injuries and had to be rushed to the hospital. Due to a high number of accidents, mishaps, and shocking deaths, Lake Lanier in Georgia is believed to be 'cursed', 'haunted', and 'full of bodies'.
