There’s something about a scary video that just makes us feel alive! And one that’s gone viral this week might be one the best yet. A huge sinkhole opening and swallowing you whole is truly the stuff of nightmares.
Flirting with danger but facing none of the consequences is the best of both worlds, in a way.
Nearly dropping something you’ve spent hours carefully crafting really gets your blood racing.
Nothing like nearly being smacked with a ball to get your heart pumping – but with none of the pain.
Well, that would have to be any involving a vehicle – because the stakes are just that little bit too high.
But sometimes a near-miss just isn’t possible.
The world has a surprisingly huge appetite for these sorts of videos – who knew?
Because it truly feels as though it could happen to you…
They can appear totally out of the blue, like something out of a sci-fi movie.
One minute, everything’s fine. The next, gone.
It was captured on CCTV in southern China.
And shows what looks like a regular road approaching a bridge.
And are suddenly completely swallowed up by a sinkhole.
Everyone is (understandably) terrified.
Looks like a pretty normal day, right?
Because what happens next will send a chill down your spine.
Within a blink of an eye, both pedestrians are gone.
This makes us feel physically sick.
Perhaps this isn’t as rare as we’d like to believe?
Don’t watch this if you scare easily!
After being rescued by firefighters, they are injured but expected to make full recoveries.
