‘What a nightmare’: Watch sinkhole swallowing cars at parking lot in Jerusalem

A large sinkhole opened up at a parking lot of a hospital in Jerusalem on Monday afternoon, swallowing up to three cars and causing panic among locals.

Pictures and security footage from the Shaare Zedek Medical Center showed cars tumbling into the pit that grew in size as its surrounding walls collapsed.

According to local news agency Times of Israel, the hospital had recently opened up the parking lot to accommodate more vehicles. Israeli police, backed by fire and rescue services, blocked the roads surrounding the hospital to conduct searches in the area. Hospital officials said they believed the collapse to have been triggered by a highway tunnel being dug nearby. No injuries were reported after police investigated the site.
