Using a smartphone while riding or driving can have a seriously shocking outcome. Governments across the world keep issuing notifications on the ban on the use of phones while driving to create awareness among people. However, some people ignore these warnings and pay a horrific price. In an unfortunate incident, a man riding a scooter on Thursday crashed into a sinkhole shortly after it appeared on a street in China’s Beihai. The rider was looking at his phone when he crashed into the hole. As per Chinese state broadcaster CCTV news, the man was not seriously hurt in the incident.

Reporting about the incident, Mirror.co.uk says that sinkholes are created when water dissolves or erodes soluble rock under the surface. The Daily Mirror report further says that the street hole was measured five meters across, eight meters long and two meters deep.

After meeting the incident, the man eventually managed to pull himself back out of the hole. Two passersby came to the injured person’s help and cordoned off the road section to ensure no other accidents occur. They even offered a ride to the motorcyclist to a local hospital. The authorities soon reached the spot and blocked off the area that is likely to take up to 20 days to get it fully fixed. The traffic department is probing the root cause of the street cave-in.
