Thinking about traveling by bus through Guizhou Province? You might want to watch this video first.
At around 12:30 a.m. on Thursday morning a bus was pulling into a bus station in Guiyang when it was suddenly swallowed whole by a massive sinkhole.
Local news reports that the driver and two passengers were trapped inside for 40 minutes while rescuers worked to pull them out of the abyss they had plummeted into. The driver suffered a serious injury to his head in the accident and was rushed to the hospital. Meanwhile, the two passengers suffered only minor injuries.
The bus was finally lifted up out of the sinkhole some four hours later.
