Giant Sinkhole in China Swallows BMW, Kills 1
Posted on July 15, 2012
Imagine yourself driving down the highway, cruising past other cars, when suddenly a sinkhole opens up and swallows you and your car. That would be a horrifying experience.
Unfortunately, on Xiangjiang Road in Changsha, a 30-square-meter sinkhole suddenly appeared on a busy street, causing the BMW and its three passengers to disappear. One of them died at the scene.
One rescuer said that the sinkhole was so deep that the bottom couldn’t be seen by the naked eye.
The road was closed for further investigations, while officials tried to determine what really caused the massive sinkhole.
