Initial suspicion about the cause of this water disappearance was the green water hyacinth but the surface of what used to be the flowing river has become a firm ground.

Plants will also be removed in the next days, as they could hide a giant sinkhole or crack.

So what the heck with this new water river disappearance?

Before the unusual incident, the water body served as means of transportation for canoe owners.

Three months ago, the Atoyac River was swallowed by a sinkhole in Mexico.
