“When we heard the loud boom we thought a gas canister from a neighboring home had exploded, or there had been a crash on the street,” Hernandez, 65, was quoted as saying.

“We rushed out to look and saw nothing. A gentleman told me that the noise came from my house, and we searched until we found it under my bed,” Hernandez reportedly said.

The sinkhole was said to be about three feet wide and 40 feet deep. Hernandez was relieved that her grandchildren who had been playing close to the bed were all safe.

Guatemala City was said to be prone to sinkholes, which is usually being blamed on leaky sewer systems or heavy rain.
