Hole in foundation?!!

I have had a leak under foundation and plumbers tunneled under the house. In the process I discovered that I can see bottom of bathtub from under the tunnel. This is nor normal?

Slab on grade?

If you had a regular house you'll often see hoes that large under tubs too. Less of an excuse for it there but it still happens.

yes, slab on grade. I'm in Texas and is it critical to fix this hole? I'm thinking about termites.
Also how close I need to watch plumbers when they fill up the tunnel? Can voids cause foundation problems?
