Mexico City homes swallowed by sinkholes

Residents of capital living on the edge as sinkholes appear almost daily due to shaky foundations.

    When a sinkhole appears, it swallows up everything in its way.

    For a place like Mexico City, which was built on top of a huge lake, they've become a near-daily occurance.

    The capital was also built on top of a series of mines.

    And for some residents this means literally living on the edge.

    Al Jazeera’s Rachel Levin reports from Mexico City.
