These campers wish they had chosen a different location to pitch their tents for the night.

After a rude awakening, they rushed from their tents in the middle of the night to try to save their vehicles from a giant sinkhole.

The men leapt from their tents half clothed when they realised their cars and vans were slowly being swallowed up.

They can be seen screaming 'No!' as they tried desperately to leverage the vehicles out of the gaping mass with their own bodyweight.

This dashcam footage from Australian towing firm 'Claytons' shows the valiant - if somewhat vain - attempts of the campers.
