WATCH: Massive Sinkhole Opens Up and Swallows Bus Commuters

Commuters waiting for a bus in Heilongjiang, China were left traumatized after the earth beneath them opened up. Five people reportedly fell into the massive sinkhole, Chinese news reported.

In CCTV footage posted to Twitter, on person is seen dangling just beneath the sinkhole’s opening—clinging desperately to an exposed underground cable.

The other commuters completely disappear from view beneath the surface.

Mashable reported that the sizeable hole was roughly 10 meters wide and two meters deep. Apparently the commuters were helped back out by good Samaritans, and received medical treatment at the hospital for any injuries.
