Video: Sinkhole swallows bus, then spits it out

The wheels on the bus go merrily down the stream as tourists have lucky escape when their bus is gobbled up by a sinkhole and swept away in Brazil

Tourists in Brazil had a lucky escape when the bus they were travelling on was swallowed by a sinkhole which formed after heavy rains swept through the Para region last week.

It seems the bus got bogged in mud and ground to a halt - forcing passengers off the bus. It appears a river rushing under the road caused a sinkhole to open up under the bus, which then disappeared from view before bobbing into view downstream and disappering.
