The incident unfolded after midnight on Thursday, on a busy road in Beihai City, China.

Surveillance video captured the moment the large sinkhole opened up in the crosswalk of the road. Later, the man can be seen riding his motorcycle straight into the sinkhole.

The man, who was not identified, plunged into the sinkhole while looking at his cell phone. Luckily, pedestrians came to the man’s aid and pulled him out of the sinkhole.

Officials said that it could take more than 20 days to fix the road.
