” A video showing a man sliding to his death in a sinkhole in the city of Shenzhen, a few kilometres north of Hong Kong, has been posted online.

CCTV footage shows 25-year-old security guard Yang Jiabin walking on a pavement holding an umbrella in the city’s Futian District before the ground opens under his feet.

Yang disappears into the hole, which reportedly measured five metres in diameter and 16 metres in depth.

Police arrive at the scene but Yang is, according to reports published later, already dead by this point.”
