China: Sichuan Sinkhole Swallows At Least 12 Buildings (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A sinkhole nearly 200-foot wide in China’s Sichuan Province has swallowed at least 12 buildings and is expected to keep growing. 

The sinkhole opened up around 12:40 a.m. Friday in the city of Guangyuan, Shanghaiist reported. As of 6:30 p.m., the sinkhole had swallowed 12 buildings, but no one was seriously injured. 

Many who have encounter sinkholes have not been so lucky. In March, a sinkhole opened up underneath the bedroom of a sleeping Florida man, swallowing him entirely. 

It’s a miracle that nobody was seriously injured.  Sinkholes are more dangerous than Marijuana. That must be a one big sinkhole. Although now its been at least sort of filled in with buildings.  Dependong on how big it is.  Once I had a sinkhole at the endof my driveway in the road, ended up swallowing a car.  Bad plumbing.  The management up there sucks.  -Mort

      Interesting story, but the photo IS NOT of the sinkhole in China. This sinkhole photo has been around the net for some time.

      • William

        I recognize it also. Can’t remember where it happened. El Salvador? That sounds right.

        • Patriot

          I think it may have been Guatemala.

      • Usefuleater

        It is from Guatemala City. Excellence in journalistic integrity. Why not post a picture of the Assumption Parish Sinkhole it is much larger and might get more hits.

      “Sinkholes are more dangerous than Marijuana.”
      so.. hardly dangerous

      • John

        yeah lol i sorta got stuck around that section…coupled with the myriad of typos and spelling mistakes would bring one to the conclusion that the author had marijuanna more than just on his mind lol

    • spright

      Sinkholes are more dangerous than Marijuana…

      Hey brother. I’ve got to admonish you. SO many posters on BIN continuously post old crap and fake crap. While the video is real, that picture is so obviously fake it’s not even funny. While that might be good for a chuckle for you, anybody that SERIOUSLY was just first checking this site out and came across this story would NEVER make it to the video to see the real one.

      Crap like this is the very reason I can’t post anything from here to Facebook. Because I post one bad story and my crediblility is shot.

      I’m a Watchman. I need unsensational real, non MSM news to encourage people that crap is coming down the pike that NOBODY is going to like. I appreciate the post, wouldn’t have found out about it otherwise I’m sure. But PLEASE don’t include faked pictures in your articles for the sake of sensationalism. :eek: :!: :idea:

      According to Vyatcheslav Krasheninnikov: Humans were created about 7500 years ago. Birds participate in time creation. It’s a sin to kill birds. Dinosaurs live under our level. They will get out through sinkholes and lakes. To kill them, go for their nerves. Demons grow human skin and put it on so as to look like us. Demons will invite people to be healed inside their UFOs; those who go will be like zombies after. Gov’t provides demons with diamonds and allows demons to abduct people. If you’re being abducted, scream: “JESUS!!!” Demons use diamonds and souls to power their UFO craft. The bigger the diamond, the more it lasts. Demons have 4 UFO bases: 1)Moon 2)Inside fake mountain Kailash in Tibet 3)In lake Baikal in Russia 4)In Atlantis which is underneath the Mariana Trench in Pacific Ocean. There are no aliens. Nobody lives on other planets. Airplanes that go down are hit by demons because they need the airspace to fight Jesus. Antichrist is pale with red eyes. Don’t go into a UFO to be healed by demons. 666 is given by isotope rays on wrist or forehead when people stretch hands to receive small plastic grey card (world passport). Police will chip and isotope ray people on highways. Food stores will isotope ray people too. Antichrist will also release prisoners to mark people. Reject 666 at all cost. If you’re about to be marked, scream: “Lord, have mercy!” three times. Go hide with Orthodox Christians to escape 666. God gives you a name during baptism. Devil gives you an anti-name during anti-baptism. Barcode is Druid black magic curse and a form of mark of the beast just like Social Security. People who took any number (which is an anti-name given during anti-baptism by the beast) on documents or in computer go to temporary hell; but those who receive green 666 (given with world passport with no name on it) on forehead or wrist go to permanent hell. How not to go to hell? Give back all these anti-name anti-baptism documents back to the beast by writing to appropriate authorities. If authorities refuse to cancel these anti-names, then write again (up to three times). If you wrote to the gov’t three times about it, but gov’t refused, then God will not send you to hell. Don’t take the microchip. If you already took it, get rid of it because microchipped people will be influenced by computers to take the world passport (grey plastic card with no name on it). Don’t go into a UFO to be healed by demons. Those who reject 666 will go to heaven. Also, their direct ancestors will be saved from hell.

      …”the sinkhole has yet to be contained”….
      LMAO — how do they expect to “contain” it?
      Btw, the top pic looks familiar. Was it the one from Guatemala?
