Within seconds, the pedestrians and pavement disappear.
Two people were swallowed into the ground after the pavement they were walking on collapsed in southern China on Monday.
Security video near a bridge in the Wulong District of Chongqing shows the shocking moment the two pedestrians find themselves plummeting downward as the sidewalk crumbles under their feet in mere seconds.
A few moments later, bystanders ran out from a store across the street to investigate.
Another video shows a close up of the fallen sidewalk as people can be heard shouting in the background.
With the help of firefighters, the pair were rescued and taken to a local hospital, according to news reports.
The woman reportedly suffered injuries after her foot was crushed by a stone while the man had head wounds.
The cause of the collapse is under investigation.
