Sinkhole swallows up woman's car with her inside.

This is one lucky lady! Can you imagine being swallowed up by the street?! That looks like she dropped quite a distance too- she's very lucky. 

So- do you think they need to reinforce their infrastructure or what?!

  • Well this is also a sinkhole...The Great Blue Hole...Took a lot of imagination to come up with that name...


     


    Xiaozhai Tiankeng...It is the world’s largest and deepest sinkhole. The hole is 626 m long and 537 m wide. It has a depth of 511-662 m.

  • I am totally freaked out by this phenomenon! Ever since that poor guy died in his bed in Florida. This is so weird and yet I guess it makes sense. Where's the money to repair all the streets (not to mention bridges)?

  • That happened here a few years ago. Sink hole fell in in the middle of the road and swallowed a car. It can't be helped. The spots have been there forever. They fall in when there has been a lot of rain and somehow the dirt gets washed away. We had one fall in in our yard 3 years ago and we had mowed over the top of it for 37 years!

  • How terrifying! Some things you just count on, like the ground under your feet.

  • This happened in my hometown. The news said she fell 20 feet. We have had rain almost every day since late May.
