HCMC – A pothole measuring some two meters in diameter and over one meter in depth suddenly appeared on the sidewalk on Kha Van Can Street, Linh Dong Ward, Thu Duc City, HCMC, this morning, April 14, and swallowed a motorbike parked there.

At around 9 a.m., when it was raining, a crack appeared on the sidewalk in front of a house at 649 Kha Van Can Street and collapsed, forming a deep hole and damaging the bike parked at the site and the doorstep of the house. No human injuries were reported.

The local competent forces sealed off the scene of the incident and were working to cope with the aftermath.

Some local residents said that a similar incident occurred one year ago at the same location. After the affected part of the sidewalk was repaired, the subsidence repeated, reported Thanh Nien newspaper.
