The Guatemala sinkhole.
330 feet deep. Swallowed 12 homes suddenly. The pit emitted foul odors, loud noises and tremors, shaking the surrounding ground. A rush of water could be heard from its depths…
I have a fear of voids, so that’s all I wanna know.
That picture third from the bottom is crazy! You can see the helicopter’s shadow!!! Creepy void, and a little freaky that randomly you could be swallowed by the Earth. Anytime. Without warning. jeepers! *shivers
So, I imagine you would never be one of these soldiers standing at the edge of the hole:
Can you imagine being one of these truck drivers and having a sink-hole open up under you while you’re driving?
As scared of voids as I am, something in me would want so badly to stare down into the abyss and face my fears. I wonder what it looked like down there? Probably completely dark like the bottomless pit in Mammoth Cave.
Sure. That was made by a sewer main clog. Right. Nothing to see here, people. Move along. Move along. Just a problem with the pipes, nothing more.
