A contractor’s employee was killed Monday when a fell into a sinkhole while working on a sewer line extension near the Westown Movies Theater. The tragical accident occurred at 11:54AM. At this time, he was reportedly still conscious and able to speak.  It took several hours to clear away a large enough area to safely recover the dead’s body, which had sunk nearly 15 feet by the time it was removed at about 5:45 p.m. The sinkhole opened up because of large quantity of groundwater in the area. Be careful and look at this map to avoid regions with too many sinkholes. (SOURCE)
