Caught on video: Seoul sinkhole swallows two

Posted: Updated:
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA (AP) – Two people suffered minor injuries after they fell into a sinkhole that opened up in a pavement in Seoul on Friday, according to local media.

A video shot by local bus CCTV showed a male and a female getting off a bus in the Yongsan area and then suddenly disappearing into a sinkhole in the pavement.

They were eventually rescued by firemen and taken to a nearby hospital.

The sinkhole was found just next to a construction site where Daewoo Engineering and Construction is building two 39-story apartments.

Seoul Metropolitan City officials and the Korean Geotechnical Society members were investigating how the sinkhole was created.
