WATCH: Sinkhole Swallows Up Pedestrians in China

At least four people have been injured after a sinkhole opened up beneath their feet at a bus stop in China.

The sinkhole appeared in the pavement on Guxiang Avenue in the city of Harbin in the north of the country.

Some managed to climb out while other were helped out by passers by before being taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries. The video shows one person clinging on before being pulled to safety.

Remarkably no one appears to have been seriously hurt in the incident.

The sudden collapse was filmed by a surveillance camera in a noodle shop near the scene.
