A large pit that appeared in late May on a farm in central Mexico has grown into more than one football field, began swallowing a house and trapped two dogs in its depths.
The central Puebla state government said late Thursday that it had managed to pull two dogs out of the pit pit, following emotional requests from animal lovers to rescue them. They were trapped for about four days on a ledge on the translucent sides of the hole dropping 50 meters (15 meters) of water.
Because the loose soil at the edges continues to collapse into the water at the bottom of the pit, for days it was considered too dangerous to try to rescue the animals.
But on Thursday a firefighter landed in the pit, partly using a ladder to place the ground on the edge. His colleagues were seen standing further away using ropes and a rotating system to transport cages holding two dogs.
The state government distributed photos of the dogs, named Spay and Spike, that looked ready and under the care of veterinarians.
The dogs were apparently playing in the farm field around the pit pit when they fell inside.
The dive pit is now over 400 meters (125 meters) in some places, and could be 150 meters (45 meters) deep at its deepest point. Hard to say, because water fills the crater.
The Mexican government has sent soldiers to keep people 2,000 meters (600 meters) away from the edge of the hole, which is 50 meters (15 meters) deep.
It’s a very difficult time for us. It hurts because that’s all we have, said Magdalena Xalamigua Xopillacle, whose brick-and-mortar house was slowly collapsing into the pit pit. Sometimes we feel sick from so much sadness.
Some residents believe the pit is the result of excess groundwater being extracted from factories or a water bottle plant in the area. But the bottom of the hole is filled with water that appears to have strong currents and the national civil protection office said experts think it was caused by something like an underground river.
Highly it is very likely that the origin is related to the presence of groundwater flows, the office said.
Puebla Governor Miguel Barbosa said experts are studying both possibilities and if water extraction is the culprit, he would cancel any permit.
Citing a risk of further fractures on the ground, the office warned people to stay away from the town of Zacatepec in the state of Puebla, east of Mexico City.
This is not a tourist attraction, or a place to visit with your family, the office said Wednesday.
Authorities have set up metal barriers and police strips to keep observers away and restrict drone flights over it.
