A huge abyss that appeared on agricultural land in central Mexico continues to grow and engulf a brick block.
The submersible first appeared in the city of Santa Maria Sacatepec in the Mexican state of Puebla, east of Mexico City, last month and continues to expand.

Associated Press reports that the big hole is more than 400 feet larger than a football field and a home located on land is starting to collapse into it.
The family living in the home was evacuated.
“Sometimes we get sick from so much sadness,” she said.
The flood was about 16 feet in diameter when it first appeared, then rose rapidly for hours and then days. The Associated Press reports that the edge of the hole is about 50 feet deep and the bottom is filled with water that appears to have strong currents.
While some residents say the abstraction may be the result of excessive use of groundwater by factories in the area, officials said it may have been caused by an underground river.
Authorities advised people to stay out of the area and provided land with troops.
