There is no doubt that the earth is a crazy place. Every now and then we keep on hearing strange things happening on this fascinating planet. The most recent was of course a large “crack” appearing in the Kenyan Rift Valley. After looking at various aspects, many concluded that it was evidence for the African continent actively splitting into two.
Another unique phenomenon that keeps on amazing commoners and scientists alike is sink holes in the ground that seem to appear out of nowhere, sometimes swallowing up cars or even entire homes. They generally looking like the apocalypse.
Something similar happened when a well sank inside the earth within few seconds. The whole incident (which seemed to happen in an Indian town) was captured on video. The video seemed to be quite old (probably taken in July 2018) but it is right now doing the rounds on the internet.
Watch the video:
After watching this video you must be wondering, how something like this could have happened.
The real culprit behind these sink holes are rainwater. When rainwater seeps into the ground with nowhere to drain then it can start to build up underground, eating away at the dirt and rock. The hole continues to grow until one day the dirt above it sinks, creating a sinkhole.
