Giant sinkhole swallows bystanders in China

HARPIN, CHINA (WVUE, FOX) - Four people were injured when they were swallowed by a sinkhole at a bus stop in China.

Surveillance cameras captured the terrifying scene.

One minute the ground is there, the next second it is not. The pavement at a bus stop in Harbin collapsed without warning.

Five people were sucked into the hole before they knew what was happening.

One woman was able to cling to pipes beneath the pavement, but four others fell deeper into the hole and sustained minor injuries.
