Wednesday, March 25, 2015, 12:45 - A day exploring the countryside took a nightmarish turn for tourists in Brazil.

On Monday, onlookers watched in horror as a massive sinkhole swallowed a tour bus in Brazil.

And then spit it back out.

The bus was carried away by rushing flood waters.

Thankfully all passengers were able to safely exit the vehicle before it fell into the giant pit.
