No, its not faked..... In a time of special effects and CGI, its hard to believe that the gigantic sinkhole in Guatemala is 100% real. But, it is, kids. It really is. The sinkhole, which spans a city intersection and goes 330 feet deep, was the result of Tropical Storm Agatha. The storm itself took the lives of over 175 people. Fortunately, the actual sinkhole didnt lead to any injuries (though it did swallow a clothing factory). This sinkhole just opened up after Agatha Tropical Storm hit Guatemala City, may 2010.
