bus stop
At least six people have been killed and 16 injured after an enormous sinkhole swallowed a bus and a number of pedestrians in central China.

The incident occurred on Monday evening outside a hospital in Xining, the capital of Qinghai province.

CCTV footage showed an explosion inside the sinkhole shortly after the bus and bystanders fell inside on Monday evening.

Comment: Not only that, another TEN people are reportedly still missing. Sinkholes can do that! We've heard of reports where people are swallowed and their bodies NEVER recovered...

Shocking moment four pedestrians are swallowed by a sinkhole
In an unexpected turn of events, a sinkhole in China swallowed at least four people and a motorbike after the road underneath them vanished suddenly.

It happened in Nanning, the provincial capital of the China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and the footage showed that initially a man walking casually on a road between the two building swallowed him.

He was later seen coming out of it and analyzing the situation, when three others gathered around him to inquire his condition.

However, as soon as the four were standing, the road underneath them once again disappeared, swallowing all of them and a motorbike standing at the corner of the road.

The concerned neighbor said his wife had just driven through the area before the sinkhole formed.

Third sinkhole in three days appears in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

A warning to Kuala Lumpur drivers: a third sinkhole has appeared in the city center this week (albeit somewhat less impressive than its cohorts), this time along Jalan Dewan Bahasa Pustaka.

City hall (DBKL) officials have blamed the relatively small patch of collapsed pavement on burst underground water pipes.

DBKL took to their Facebook account to warn commuters of potential delays along the stretch of road leading towards the intersection of Jalan Loke Yew and Hang Tuah. Drivers wanting to get to Jalan Imbi have been advised to use the overpass while repairs are being carried out.

Three sinkholes have appeared throughout the city in as many days, with the first reported on Sunday night after it dramatically swallowed up a woman's Perodua Myvi as she drove near Stadium Merdeka. No one was injured in the incident, which left a three-meter hole along Jalan Maharajalela.

It's not every day a giant hole opens up in the ground to swallow us whole, but it would scare most people to think about the injuries an incident like that could cause.

On Sunday (Nov 25), a woman in Kuala Lumpur was fortunate to escape unscathed, after her yellow Perodua Myvi fell into a sinkhole that opened up in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

According to Bernama, the 42-year-old woman was driving along Jalan Maharajalela in the direction of Jalan Loke Yew when a sinkhole opened up on the road.

Citing Kuala Lumpur Traffic Enforcement and Investigation head ACP Zulkefly Yahya, the state news agency reported that the ground sunk in at around 11.35pm on Sunday, causing the car to fall in head first.
