I can't find any evidence that this actually happened.
* During the North African Campaign in World War 2, an entire Nazi tank division disappeared in the Al-Qattara Depression, an enormous quicksand in the centre of Egypt, while trying to bypass the British defences at El Alamein; only one man survived (presumably by jumping out of his tank and crawling away on his hands and knees), and was found several days after the battle of Alamein, staggering through the desert, completely insane, laughing unstoppably.

* There were at least two occasions on ''TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'' where the good guys found themselves getting stuck in quicksand. In a strange mistake in relation to the games, they apparently forgot they had the ability to hop out of the quicksand and needed to be rescued.

* The heroes in ''Film/{{Krull}}'' run afoul of this in a swamp. It is heavily implied [[BidBad The Beast]] is using his dark magic to make them get sucked in.

* In the first episode of ''WesternAnimation/RainbowBrite'' the villain disguises quick sand as water. Rainbow is suspicious of it however Starlite is covered in dirt and attempts to clean himself. He gets stuck in the quicksand, as does Rainbow Brite, and if it wasn't for Brian they would have died.

* Averted in a ''HagarTheHorrible'' strip. Hagar and Lucky Eddie seem to be sinking in a quicksand, but a local (whom only Eddie can speak to, so we only see gibberish) informs them that it isn't quicksand. [[spoiler: It's concrete.]] * A favorite of TheFarSide, with a collection of hats usually floating on the surface to indicate who the last unlucky victim was.
