Oops, Car Hangs on Edge of Sinkhole Then Topples in (Video)

Two men in Fujian Province are lucky to be alive after a sinkhole swallowed their car whole.

The incident happened on Nov. 27 when the 12-foot by 6-foot cavity opened up at a busy intersection in Quanzhou City after a heavy truck drove across, according to Sina News.

Fortunately the driver and his passenger decided to get out of the vehicle before the ground destabilized further, and the car then fell into the hole.
