Surveillance cameras have made our lives easier, interesting and safe by recording the live incidents which take place all around us. One of the most shocking such incidents was recorded in a recent CCTV footage in southeastern China.

The footage showcases a man being engulfed into a sinkhole which suddenly appears on the footpath while he is walking with some other people, who get shocked at the incident and can be seen panicking and looking for ways to get him out.

An edited footage of two separate CCTV cameras of the incident which took place in Jiangxi Province's Nanchang on Thursday has been going viral, leaving thousands of viewers in fits of laughter. The unsuspecting pedestrian was crossing the road when the footpath caved.

While walking with three of his friends, the pedestrian suddenly disappeared from sight leaving his friends stunned. Other passersby also rushed to help the victim out of the sinkhole. The accident was a result of many paving stones giving way altogether.

Thankfully, the man was taken out without any injuries and minor scars but the footage has been creating a wave among the masses ever since. A similar incident took place in October in China's northeastern Heilongjiang province.

The incident shocked people as a Rolls-Royce Phantom car plunged head-first into a six-foot-deep sinkhole. However, the owner was saved unharmed but the expensive car was severely damaged.
