Trees swallowed: Assumption Parish, Louisiana sinkhole swallows trees in seconds

ASSUMPTION PARISH, La. - It looks like a scene from a movie, when a sinkhole swallows a group of trees underwater in Louisiana.

This video was shot on Wednesday, but the sinkhole first appeared last year in Assumption Parish, La.

It forced a mandatory evacuation in that area.

Since then, state and federal agencies have been monitoring it.

That's why cameras were already rolling when this sinkhole swallowed the trees.
