A young girl fell through the pavement into a sink hole in northern China.
“The dirt kept showering down on us and the kid couldn’t stop crying,” he added.
Underground water had eroded the ground under the road and caused a cavity under the pavement.
The ground in the pit continued to shift while the cab driver and the girl were still in it, which made it impossible for them to climb out until firefighters extended a ladder in to help them.
“The ladder kept moving about, it’s a little flimsy and the girl kept screaming out of fear. So I told her to go first and I’ll be right behind her. Finally we managed to get out,” Wang said.
Amateur footage showed the pair emerging from the hole and being pulled to safety with the help of fire fighters and passers-by.
