Within minutes, the bus tipped back and disappeared into the hole only to reappear on the other side of the overpass as the water's powerful current swept it away.
Jornal Nacional reports another vehicle tried to winch the bus to safety, but the cable used to pull it gave way.
No one was inside at the time and there were no reported injuries.
The road was closed following the incident, preventing access by land to Rurópolis for two days.
Repair works to patch up the hole were expected to be completed and the road reopened to traffic today.
