3 kids, their mother and father saw water coming into their home. They got in the car to escape. And the car started to sink!
The family got out of this nightmarish situation and is now safe! Terrifying!
So here the facts: A large water main break created a sinkhole in Bladensburg/Hyattsville, Md, which swallowed the whole family in its car trying to escape their flooded home. This all occurred at around 3:30 am, so in the middle of the night! Apocalyptic!
Yes a family of five – Darwin Mendoza, his wife and their three young children – was nearly swallowed up in a sinkhole along with their car after they noticed water was engulfing their home.
In no time, the car was almost entirely submerged. Thankfully they got out just in time.
Residents were asked to evacuate their homes while WSCC crews worked to stop the water.
According to some neighbours, the water gushing from the main pipe and flooding homes around was sounding like a hurricane. Imagine how furious this event was!
