Sometimes, it can seem like you are taking your life into your own hands simply by stepping outside.
On November 11th, a woman was walking near a bus stop in the Gansu capital of Lanzhou when the sidewalk suddenly gave way beneath her. A surveillance camera captured that terrifying moment, showing the woman’s head slamming into the collapsing bricks before she disappears into the pit.
A grand total of two pedestrians hurry over to the hole to check on her while more than a dozen people waiting meters away at the bus stop stay put, one dude doesn’t even lift his eyes from his phone.
Afterward, police officers arrived on the scene, managing to rescue the woman who reportedly did not suffer any serious injuries in the fall. It’s not yet clear what caused the collapse.
