A huge sinkhole has formed in the parking lot of the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. During this, it also engulfed three cars parked nearby. The pictures and videos of the parking lot going viral on social media showed that this pit was created suddenly. After this the walls of all four of it collapsed and three cars got stuck in this pit. The rescue team reached there in a hurry, but no one was injured in the incident.
According to the Times of Israel news, a tunnel was under construction near this pit, which was passing under the hospital and parking lot. It is believed that the tunnel partially collapsed, due to which it became a crater. However, recently a new parking lot with a capacity of hundreds of vehicles was opened. But it seems that this pit has been made in the old parking area. Firefighters and rescue teams said that seven fire trucks reached the spot as soon as they came in front of the pit.
