    Brooklyn Sidewalk Swallows Woman

    NEW YORK - A woman out walking Monday was swallowed by the sidewalk when it caved in under her.

    The woman, 64, fell into a sinkhole about 5 feet by 2 feet wide and about 5 feet deep in front of a house in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn.

    Firefighters rushed to the woman's aid, using metal hooks to pull concrete chunks off her before strapping her to a stretcher and removing her from the hole.

    The woman, who had just picked up her two grandchildren from a nearby dance school and gone to a grocery store, was taken to a hospital Monday evening and was expected to be OK, firefighters said. She chuckled when they commented on how her groceries had spilled into the hole, they said.


    The people who live in the house said it appeared the foundation under the sidewalk had been washed away.

    Wow, I can't believe she didn't get too badly hurt with blocks on concrete falling on top of her.

    Good point! Kind of a dramatic way to keep them "strong" but that'll work nonetheless!!

    You would think that the people who lived in the house would have reported the fact that the side walk was washing out and about to collapse.

    Yeah, like that would really happen. They were waiting for someone to fall through the ground and make them pay for it to get fixed!
