This is the moment 30 people come together to save their neighbour's car
This is the moment 30 people come together to save their neighbour's car after the vehicle becomes trapped on the edge of a large sinkhole.

The road surface caved in on 11th August during heavy rains in Yan'an city, China.

The hole - measuring at least 5 metres in depth - opened up right behind the white people carrier, with footage shows rain and muddy groundwater sloshing around inside during the downpour.


With the car perched on the edge of the sinkhole and threatening to tumble in at any moment, some 30 people from the residential area offered to help pull it out.

Footage shows the group forming two lines and shouting "one, two, three!" as they pull at two ropes attached to the chassis of the people carrier.

The car owner revs the engine and drives away from the hole, and the group is able to save the vehicle from certain destruction as the video ends.

Local authorities said no one was injured during the incident, which is still under investigation.

The sinkhole is believed to have been caused by recent heavy rains, which washed away soil underground.
