Argentina's underwater town that was submerged for 30 years

The town of Epecuen in Argentina was once a busy lakeside tourist resort.

But in November 1985, after a succession of wet winters, the lake overflowed, breaking through the lake wall and into the town.

Residents evacuated safely, but the town remained underwater for almost 30 years until the water evaporated.

Now the ruins of the town have emerged and residents can walk around their former home again.
