The Chinese village that's being swallowed by sinkholes after 20 cave-ins in just five months

The land in a Chinese village is quite literally disappearing before the residents' eyes with large sinkholes swallowing up vast spaces.

In the past five months villagers from Lianyuan in southern China's Hunan Province have been left alarmed after seeing over 20 holes suddenly open up in the ground.

From last September the cave-ins, which range in size, have seen houses collapse and rivers dry and left villagers terrified about where the next will be.
