Watch Your Step -- the Pavement Might Not Be as Solid as You Think

By Sam Gibbs on at

I’ll never take a solid piece of ground for granted again after seeing this poor Chinese girl captured on CCTV falling right through the pavement, totally disappearing into a large invisible sinkhole that had been eroded underneath.

If a taxi driver hadn’t been watching at the time, do you reckon anyone else would have even noticed? The hole wasn’t that big and the girl was apparently unresponsive, so who knows how long she’d have been down there. My commute home is going to be interesting one tonight, gingerly walking and avoiding cracks like a lunatic. [Reuters]
