Sinkhole swallows bus leaving 80 square foot pit in Chinese road

An enormous sinkhole swallowed a bus and pedestrians in northwest China, sparking an explosion, killing six people and leaving four more missing, state media said on Tuesday.

Footage showed people at a bus stop running from the collapsing road as the vehicle – jutting into the air – sank into the ground.

Several people disappeared into the sinkhole as it spread. The incident also triggered an explosion inside the hole.
