A man died and another was injured as a gigantic sinkhole opened up beneath an Israeli swimming pool, sucking them in.

The horrible incident occurred on Thursday, July 21, at a party at a residence in the town of Karmei Yosef, just outside Tel Aviv, Israel, according to the Times of Israel.

The terrifying video of the moment the massive sinkhole opened up and swallowed the deceased down has emerged.

Footage shot by a partygoer showed the gaping hole suddenly appearing in the middle of the in-ground pool – and the water quickly receding as screams rang out.

The water and a number of inflatable toys vanished into the hole within seconds as several people scrambled to safety, the video showed.

“The water level suddenly started receding and a hole opened up, creating a vortex that swept two people inside,” a witness told Times of Israel.

The body of 32-year-old Klil Kimhi was discovered hours later at the bottom of a 43-foot deep hole, officials told the outlet.

The other man, who wasn’t named, managed to climb out of the sinkhole and suffered minor injuries to his lower body, authorities said.

One man was caught on camera slipping and falling dangerously close to the hole as it opened up, but it wasn’t immediately clear if that was the injured partygoer described by authorities.

About 50 people were at the party, but only six people were in the pool when the disaster struck, according to authorities.
