Imagine going for a swim or dive in a Minnesota lake and finding a stature of fictional serial killer Jason Voorhees. Complete with hockey mask and machete. I don't think I would ever get in a lake again.

This nightmare fuel scenario actually exists in a lake in Crosby Minnesota:

It’s the work of artist Curtis Lahr, who built this nightmarish/fantastic piece, replete with machete in hand, and placed it 120 feet at the bottom of a popular spot for divers in Crosby, Minnesota.

It sits in the Louise Mine Pit, in Crystal Lake. Fitting right? As the years go by, the wear and tear from the water makes it even more terrifying. There are videos on YouTube showing people diving down to it and it makes me sick to my stomach. My sensitive soul just could NOT handle that. Here is the most recent video, posted in August of 2018.
