The video shows several commuters waiting for a bus in Harbin, in northeast Heilongjiang Province on Saturday, when the ground suddenly gives way beneath them.

When the sinkhole opens up in the pavement, four people fall directly in.

The video also shows a woman trapped on a steel beam just below the pavement.

A group of bystanders can be seen helping to rescue the victims.

Local media reported the sinkhole was ten metres wide and two metres deep, and that those swallowed up suffered minor injuries.
