Louisiana Sinkhole Video: Trees Disappear

I've got a "sinking feeling" that you're going to be absolutely shocked when you watch this video above depicting nature at its scariest.

The caught-on-camera moment with trees being devoured by a sinkhole, was captured in Assumption Parish, La., and posted online by assumptionla.

And while we're very happy to witness this rare phenomenon, our first reaction if we were in the same situation as the cameraman who shot this? Run for your life!
