An incredible video has emerged showing the terrifying moments during which homes in the Brazilian city of Abaetetuba were swept away and literally swallowed up by the ground after a nearby river overflowed, causing a portion of the street to literally cave-in on itself.

The video also captures the harrowing moments when a mother throws her child from a second-story window moments before their home collapses.

The video apparently was taken on Saturday in the St. John neighborhood of Abaetuba, in Brazil's Pará State.
