Glad she's ok. :)

Now she also has bonus of having a genuine "unforgettable" experience to tell everyone about. (and 15mins of fame)

I think I have a phobia of something like that happening to me. It all started after I saw a news article about a hole house with family in it that disappeared down a 300foot sink hole. What a horrible way to die. Glad this girl was ok though!

They eat houses and cars ever so often in Florida.  It has to do with the water table being reduced I think...  From the video it looked as though she should have had quite a scrape on her face. Oooooch!

Weird, I have that same phobia...

When I visited La Paz, Bolivia, 20 years ago, you could sometimes see a running stream deep down though a crack in the pavement. People had fallen through, and were never found again.

That's the things nightmares are made of, jesus.

Sometimes you don't really notice life until you're sinking in it.

I use to live in Mexico City, and the pavements were not the best. You always needed to look down, else you would disappear down a hole. Even though I have been back in England for 6 years, I still always look down. It's a hard habit to break.

I remember all sorts of holes, unfinished sidewalks, sewers down below rickety steel doors, loose rebar aiming at my shins,...someone joked last time i was down there that if america had sidewalks like that the lawyers would never sleep. :huh:

I saw that news article I think. You're right, that's an absolute terrible way to die! I used to be afraid growing up in North Dakota of falling into a hole in the snow in spring. In ND, they receive SO much snow that when the spring warmth comes, it starts to melt and creates thousands of under the snow raging rivers. Literally tubes of water rushing right below your feet that you can't see. And if it's a warm enough day, and you're walking through a pasture or field, you run the risk of breaking through the top layers of snow/ice and being swept down these hidden rivers.

I remember stories of people falling through and not being seen again until summer reached and the snows melted. They would find corpses in the middle of fields from this. It was scary!

They mention the mall woman and say she was occupied on a mobile, but honestly, I do not see where she was supposed to get the warning on phone or no phone, The ground just gave way below here, I do not see how this is like the mall woman at all, or how she could be at fault in any way.


A teenage girl in north China was walking on a pavement while talking on her mobile phone, when she fell


s Cathy Cruise, the woman who became famous for falling into a mall fountain while texting, said, the worst part of the fall was her embarrassment.
"The humiliation," she said. "You don't know how many people are laughing at you."



Quite different circumstances IMHO.

The area I lived was quite scenic and automobile companies and others would often shoot commercials showing the wistfully meandering road with rolling hills and mountains in the background. I was a first responder and would mull the number of fatalities and accidents that had occurred over each mile of that road as I drove it over the years. How different our perpectives can be when we are sensitized to the sometimes dire realities and the perils that lurk in our everyday settings. Let us be thankful for good samaritans. And, for this  teenager who escaped with perhaps nothing more than a bruised ego and some likely ribbing from her peers.
