As people were boarding a bus in Xining, China, a large sinkhole opened up, causing the bus to nosedive into the deep pit. Tragically, six people died and at least 16 others were injured.
According to BBC:
The incident occurred on Monday evening outside a hospital in Xining, the capital of Qinghai province.
CCTV footage showed an explosion inside the sinkhole shortly after the bus and bystanders fell inside on Monday evening...

A number of people gather to try to rescue the bus passengers, but are engulfed by the sinkhole as it suddenly widens.
The sinkhole was 32 feet in diameter.
