This is the freakiest thing I've seen..
A house and three people just disappeared into this hole in the ground in Guatemala City. The resident in this poor neighbourhood had heard sounds and felt the ground shake for a month.
The city was aware of the problem and thought it could be a blocked water pipe and sewer. They were planning to execute a controlled explosion but the problem literally disappeared before they could do anything.
1,000 people have been evacuated, there's a good chance the hole, which is 100 meters deep, will grow bigger. There might also appear similar holes around the city.
They've also found a body but they can't say if it's one of the three people missing.
Because bodies in sewers are all too common this time of year...?
