Heavy rains have been hitting the town of Lircay, Peru and its surround hard in the last several days, leading to significant structural damage to a number of buildings in the town. One particularly tragic casualty of the eroding river's edge was the total collapse of a three-story hotel.

In this crazy travel video, you'll see the La Hacienda hotel completely collapse into the swelling Sicra river below. The hotel's location adjacent to the river left it vulnerable to the rising waters, and eventually the foundation completely gave out and the hotel crumbled right into the river rushing by. Luckily, as the situation worsened, the 50-room hotel was evacuated and no one was injured when it crashed into the water.
