A man was surprised to find a hidden room connected to the house he'd just bought - only learning about the mysterious chamber when he parked a huge bus on the ground above it and saw the concrete had caved in.
Reddit user u/lofud posted a series of pictures on the popular forum, one showing a slightly lop-sided bus parked up over a concrete patch, and another, closer shot providing a little more detail of the space lurking below.
In an update, he also posted a video taken from security cameras, which shows the moment the bus began to fall through the crumbling ground.
He wrote: "Bought a house with an old garage on it. Finally got the funds for a new garage and built that.
"When we removed the old garage there was a concrete pad still there which I had parked a few cars on over the course of a few weeks.
"One day I decided to bring the bus up the drive for a wash, walked into the garage to get the supplies and heard a crash and the garage shook, walked outside to see this. Spent the next 2 days filling the hole with sand and slowly jacking up the bus then more sand over and over again and got it out totally undamaged."
Judging from the time and date stamp on the security footage, it looks like the incident happened back in 2018, but the clip has now picked up a fair bit of attention on Reddit after the homeowner shared it.
In a later update, he added: "I totally forgot about this... so after the bus fell in, we also found a tunnel heading towards the house. Only about 3 or 4 metres long but they had started and never finished it.
"As far as the entrance goes, once we knew about the hole, in one part of the broken concrete you could see where there was a different texture of concrete in a square shape which would have been inside the garage. But at some stage they filled the entrance and never went down there again."
Another user asked what was inside the room, to which the original poster said he 'never found out' as they'd had to fill the hole in order to rescue the bus.
"We could see a water pipe and power in there, it had a corrugated iron roof and wooden supports," he explained.
"A couple of years earlier I had my fuse box rewired in the house, and when it was done there was one larger than average wire left over, we couldn't figure out where it went so we left it out, guess I found it."
