A CCTV footage of a large sinkhole opening up with people standing on the pavement has emerged on the social media. The awful incident took place in China’s Heilongjiang Province. The passengers were waiting for a bus in the northeast city of China, and suddenly the ground beneath them opened up.

China’s Xinhua news reported that four people fell into the two-metre-deep hole that was about 10 square metres wide while one person somehow managed to cling on to a cable below the ground. The injured were later taken to a hospital.

It surely is a one-off incident that caught the passers-by and the victims in shock. Fortunately, none of the injured persons lost their lives. Check out the footage of the surveillance camera that has now been uploaded on the YouTube.
