Large sinkhole swallows 2 cars, leaving 2 people missing and 3 injured, Guatemala

A large sinkhole opened up on a street south of Guatemala City on September 25, 2022, swallowing 2 cars and leaving 2 people missing and 3 injured.

Officials said the 3 injured people fell into the hole in their vehicle and were rescued several hours later by emergency services.

Two missing people – reportedly a woman and her teenage daughter – were supposedly traveling in another car that also fell in, their relatives told journalists.1

Relief corps and members of the Guatemalan army entered the sinkhole with a special team in search of the two missing persons, without success so far, although they did pull a vehicle out.

The sinkhole was caused by heavy rains in the municipality of Villa Nueva.
