    A massive sinkhole that cracked open farmland in Santa Maria Zacatepec was captured on video on Sunday in Puebla State, Mexico.

    The hole was reported by locals on Saturday with a diameter of 60 m wide and 15 m deep, according to the National Defense Ministry, prompting residents and local farmers to avoid the area.

    Local activists and non-profit civil associations speculated that the cause of the sinking may be the overexploitation of aquifers in the area by the industrial parks working in the state.

    Local authorities had not given any details.

    Mexico is a country in the southern portion of North America. It is the most populous Spanish-speaking nation. Mexico City is its capital city and largest metropolis.

    Mexico became an independent nation state after the successful Mexican War of Independence against Spain in 1821.

    Mexico is a developing country, but has the world’s 15th-largest economy by nominal GDP and the 11th-largest by PPP, with the United States being its largest economic partner. Since 2006, a conflict between the government and drug trafficking syndicates has led to over 120,000 deaths.

    Mexico receives a significant number of tourists every year; in 2018, it was the 6th most-visited country in the world, with 39 million international arrivals.
