    Saw that On MSN earlier, wasn't there something like that in Russia with sinkholes in the streets?

    Woah, sick. I don't want to experience such thing.


    Wasn't that in South America?

    Yeah, sinkholes in Guatemala.

    *insert Team Rocket joke*



    Seriously though, I've read about this happening in the US as well after the ground underneath had been heavily minded & essentially hollowed out (can't remember the exact city, but I think there was also a "Life After People" episode about something similar).

    Pretty scary stuff, yep.

    Sinkholes can also occur when natural aquifers are drained by excessive agricultural and/or residential use, resulting in large hollow spaces where the natural cisterns once were. Sounds like a similar thing happened here, with groundwater flow disturbed for some reason leading to underground erosion.

    That's scary stuff, I guess she's not going to walk and talk on her cell phone for a while.

    Doubt it.

    I mean these days, having an car accident while texting won't stop people from doing it less than a week later, so why would this?


    Edit - Hmm k, I guess if her legs are broken hah. In my defense, trying to open the link killed my browser, so I missed that completely.

    Of course not, both her legs are broken and her cell phone was lost in the pit.
