Cell Phone Talking Girl Falls Through 20-Foot Sinkhole

April 25, 2012


This is a video of a girl in China talking on her cell phone when she falls through a 20-foot sinkhole. And for once, I don't blame her. While I generally frown on the use of a cellular device while doing anything other than sitting motionless in a locked room, this girl was just crossing a seemingly ordinary sidewalk. Besides, WHY IS THERE NOTHING HOLDING UP THE SIDEWALK BUT 20 FEET OF AIR? Now I'm no structural engineer, but that sounds like ten feet too many.

Hit the jump for the I TOLD YOU TO NOT STEP ON ANY CRACKS.

Thanks to Ian, Crystal, Richard and abbey, who don't trust sidewalks and for good reason. Same! One time I fell off my skateboard and the sidewalk touched my booty. I didn't even like that sidewalk! (I was in love with a streetlight is the thing)

    So firefighters just let her walk away? What if she had a concussion?

  • Bang a claim in

  • The real question is how much does the cab driver's Wang Wei!?

  • GW, it's a geotechnical engineer who is responsible, not a structural engineer.

    i'm glad she's okay and i'm even more glad that people went over to help her. anyone remember that story in china about a little girl being ran over and over 15 people passing her by and not calling for help? 

  • Unbelievable! 

  • That taxi driver deserves a statue of him built.

    20ft and not a scratch wow that's as amazing as falling through the sidewalk!

  • ryan gutierrez

    how did that crowd NOT fall in with her?!

  • Emilie Wylder

    lol I got a pop-up ad just as she fell in:  "Need Concrete?"

  • But in Latin, Jehovah starts with an 'I'!

    her miss...

  • I don't think she could have avoided this, whether she was on her cell phone or not.

  • Peter_Pedro

     If she had her right hand free she may have been able to hold on to the pavement.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    Wow... something that still could've happened without the distraction of a cell phone...

    It seems to be a regular "tile" of sidewalk from the looks of the video.

    So...  Moral of the story: When in China, watch where you walk, or you may fall through the Earth and come out in the US?
