A huge sinkhole has swallowed a car, a caravan, and a camping trailer at a popular camp ground in Australia, prompting the evacuation of around 140 people Saturday night. One camper said the sinkhole, larger than a football field, scared the life out of her. Melanie Wotherspoon has described the fear that engulfed her when the 150-meter long, 50 meter-wide sinkhole opened up at MV Beagle Campground, north of Queensland’s Rainbow Beach at Inskip Point.
“Yep, can’t believe we made it out,” she wrote on Facebook. “I thought we were goners for sure, was truly scary how fast it came into our camp site and swallowed it up.” No one was reported injured and everyone has been accounted for, a police spokeswoman told AAP early on Sunday. Authorities say the monstrous sinkhole is now three meters deep and takes in a large part of the MV Beagle camp site, Australia’s 7 News reported. FULL REPORT
