Default OMG, check this out!

a house in Guatemala City disappeared when a gigantic hole opened beneath it. Three people are missing. The hole probably appeared because a large water-leak and lots of rain made the ground porous. Nobody knows how deep the hole is, so there's been no attempt at a rescue mission yet.

Damn you can't even see the bottom of that hole. How does **** like this even happen??

The pit was emitting foul odors, loud noises and tremors, and a rush of water could be heard from its depths. Authorities feared it could widen or others could open up.

Sounds like it goes straight to hell.

kinda reminds me of the 'war of the worlds' when the aliens come out of the ground. That hole looks real deep on the site.
