A sinkhole opened up out of nowhere in a swimming pool, sucking in partygoers at a private gathering in central Israel on Thursday, July 21, reports the Times of Israel. The video from the party is terrifying!

It has been reported that one of the two men sucked into the sinkhole was found dead hours later, while the other managed to climb his way out when the disaster occurred in the middle of a party.

While the investigation into the mysterious opening is underway, the police have dispatched a helicopter, scanning the area for more sinkholes, if any.

Video shows sinkhole open up in swimming pool

The viral video was shared on Twitter by Israeli media corporation Kan News.

The terrifying clip sees partygoers just sitting by the pool, while a man is seen pulling himself away from the sinkhole after it suddenly starts sucking in all the inflatables in the pool.

Within seconds, the water level starts to recede and the entire water from the pool is sucked into it, leaving a huge opening behind.

The incident is said to have taken place at a private home in Karmei Yosef, where a company was hosting a party for its employees.

The 34-year-old who managed to escape has sustained injuries to his limbs and is currently in a stable state, Fox reports.

Partygoers were terrified

Those who witnessed the sinkhole described the nerve-wracking experience to the Times of Israel.

The part roughly consisted of 50 members, six of whom were in the pool at the time.

One witness said: “The water level suddenly started receding and a hole opened up, creating a vortex that swept two people inside.”

When another witness was alarmed by what she saw and told their colleagues to get out of the pool, they thought it was some sort of a game.

“Seconds later, the ground just dropped… I watched two people just disappear,” she reportedly said.

Search team was extra cautious

The victim was reportedly found dead four hours after the search operation began. The rescuers had Go-Pro cameras hooked to their helmets as they entered deeper levels of the underground.

The Fire and Rescue services also feared a secondary collapse of the tunnels branching out of the sinkhole.

So, they built a “support structure” to prevent the pool from collapsing further as the search operation was carried out.

At the time of writing, no other details regarding the victim have been disclosed.
