One night recently in the Guangxi city of Beihai a massive sinkhole suddenly opened up on one road.
At 32 feet wide and 6 feet deep, you would think that the hole would be pretty hard to miss. However, some time later, a scooter rider is seen falling right in, unable to stop in time.
As for how this guy managed to miss a humongous sinkhole in the middle of the road, Chinese netizens couldn’t help but notice that as the man falls into the hole he appears to be holding a cell phone in one hand.
Fortunately, the man wasn’t seriously injured in the accident, and actually climbed out of the hole himself. Perhaps this incident will cure him of his cell phone addiction. Perhaps not.
