'Sinkhole' appears in Guatemala bedroom
A Guatemalan woman woke up in the middle of the night to discover a 12m hole (39ft) under her bed.
The country's National Disaster Relief Agency says because Guatemala City is surrounded by volcanoes and prone to heavy rain, it is susceptible to natural erosions that cause sinkholes.
The agency is investigating if there are any risks to residents in the area.
