Take a look at this incredible video coming out of China — where a massive sinkhole swallowed a 25-year-old man in seconds.
The video, which was captured by 2 closed-circuit TV cameras, shows the man identified as Yang Jiabin walking in Shenzhen near a construction site when suddenly a 26-foot wide, 52 foot deep sinkhole suddenly opens up and swallows him alive.
Despite a quick response from rescue workers, the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The shocking incident caused officials to evacuate nearby residents.
According to published reports , over 100 sinkholes have formed in Beijing over the past two months. Poorly planned development is said to be the main factor.
Earlier this month, 43-year-old Mark Mihal nearly died when he was swallowed by a sinkhole while playing golf on a course near St. Louis.
Weeks before that, a Florida man was killed when a sinkhole opened up under his home. His body was never recovered.
