The scenes in movies of a bridge or a road caving in and swallowing vehicles is scary in itself. But imagine if it happens in real life, especially when you are in the vehicle and it disappears into a sinkhole that has just formed.

One such incident took place at the parking lot of Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. However, there were no injuries in the incident.

The security footage of the sinkhole which was distributed by the hospital has been doing rounds in social media. The video shows a number of cars falling into the collapsing ground.

The sinkhole is believed to have been formed as a result of tunnel construction running underneath the hospital and parking lot. The tunnel which would be a new route at the entrance of Jerusalem appeared to have partially collapsed. According to reports, the authorities are now investigating the incident, checking if the tunnel construction has anything to do with the sinkhole.
