In Russia, Sinkhole Swallows You! [video]

It seems like we’re seeing more and more sinkholes in the news than ever before. Perhaps that is because we have more cameras than ever. Or perhaps 24-hour news has given up on covering anything meaningful and cover things thousands of miles away that don’t effect you. Hey- that’s our job!

As you might have guessed, this video was taken in Russia– the town of Tyumen, to be exact. According to Jalopnik, the town is 1,600 miles east of Moscow, and keeps in step with the Russian tradition of wild videos of impossible occasions. See for yourself:

We wonder if this has to do with an aging infrastructure. The U.S. is not immune to such issues, as we have seen plenty of footage of sinkholes opening in places like Florida. All we can say is– keep your attention on the road and watch for gaping chasms in the street!
