Officials in Zhengzhou, China, wanted to build an artificial lake on the outskirts of the city, but everything went wrong.

The source of water they intended to use dried up and the hundreds of thousands of tonnes of sand destined for the artificial beach began to spread, covering an area the size of four football fields.

According to OddityCentral: "Authorities are currently looking for solutions to this environmental disaster, but judging by the size of these sand dunes, I doubt it's going to be resolved any time soon."
