A man of 63 years has been about to drown on Friday May 15 in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria after being eaten by a 6-meter-deep sinkhole in the industrial area of Las Torres.
One car has been swallowed and another was left hanging at the top of the hole. As shown in the picture, the bottom of the cavity is full of water.
The terrifying accident happened at around 10 am. It is still unsure what created the sinkhole: water main break? Underground landslide?
