Mexico capital's water crisis over crumbling infrastructure

The global water crisis is being keenly felt in one of the world's largest capitals.

    Mexico City is home to 22 million people; their homes are built over what was a vast lake drained by Spanish settlers.

    Shortages are getting worse, mainly due to the fact that the city is sinking, putting more strain on its crumbling water system.
