Dramatic footage has emerged from China of the moment a sinkhole opened up, swallowing a minivan.
The video, filmed in Nantong, Jiangsu Province on June 10, shows an already-damaged road collapsing, causing the parked vehicle to fall into the hole. The collapse causes a water pipe to break, which was spilling water into the hole. Fortunately, no one was injured.
China is the proud owner of the world’s deepest sinkhole, reaching 662 meters deep. The cause for these occurrences is very simple – it’s the matter that is beneath the surface, which is shifting elsewhere.
