A HOLIDAYMAKER believes he has captured the image of Osama Bin Laden’s face – in a glacier moments before it crashed into the sea.
British tourist Bob Merry, from Bristol, was travelling around Argentina – when he spotted the unmistakable likeness of the cold-blooded terrorist in the ice.
The shocked 30-year-old promptly whipped out his camera to take a photograph of the Perito Moreno Glacier in the Santa Cruz province of the South American country.
Seconds later, the block of ice had crumbled into the sea – in much the same way that the global terror chief met his demise on Monday.
Mr Merry, an aerobic instructor, claims he has received mixed responses since he took the photograph on his round-the-world trip last year.
He said: “I can see it clear as day, some of my mates have took the mickey a bit and think I’m a bit crackers.
“But most people have said they can see his image as well, so I’m not alone. It is obvious to me.
“When I saw that he was dumped in the sea – it just made me think of this picture again.
“I remember I saw the image appear on the glacier face as the ice shifted, I took a quick picture.
“Then the ice shifted again with a thunderous roar and with that, he was gone.
“Maybe it was a symbolic glimpse into the future – but maybe it’s just a bit of ice.”
The 97 sq mile glacier is one of the major tourist attractions in southern Patagonia.
It is 5 kilometres wide, with an average height of 240ft above the surface of the water and a depth of 558 ft.
“It was a breathtaking sight in its entirety,” added Mr Merry.
“But I’ll remember it for one thing – the face of Osama Bin Laden.”
