Hi.

So this is pretty crazy a girl is walking down the street and falls through the sidewalk......www.telegraph.co.uk...




The pavement caved in under the teenager's weight as soon as she stepped onto a section of the walkway





Underground water had eroded the ground under the road and caused a cavity under the pavement.





Amateur footage showed the pair emerging from the hole and being pulled to safety with the help of fire fighters and passers-by.


I thought it was a cool story sorry if it's been posted I did search.

Mistake?

How?

Was she supposed to know that the sidewalk would collapse out from under her?

Sorry, that was a quote from an old English TV show (Allo Allo) The Italian general bloke used to say it. Ofcourse it wasn't her fault that the ground gave way beneath her, I was just being silly.

At least people didn't continue going about their business as if nothing had happened. Then again, this didn't appear to have happened in America.

Now after saying that, lol, that was really cool to watch.

Love stories like this. As they say with fruit "5 a day" as a small thing to make huge impact on life quality. They should suggest "1 a day" of these kind of videos as well. We all need a little reminder of the good people in life.
Don't understand how people could just ignore an accident if witnessing it.

Had a similar situation myself a week ago where i was on my way home from work and saw a child hanging upside down in a tree barely by the threads at the tip of a leg on her pants and her friend sitting on a branch not being able to help as the first was hanging on the only way down. Without even considering it I jumped of my bike sending it crashing into a fence and somehow vaulted a quite high gate (still trying to wrap my thoughts around that) and rushed over and barely made it in time to get her down. All I remember saying was "You gotta be careful kiddo. Good it went well. Enjoy the rest of the day" (roughly translated, except I actually use the word kiddo) and I went on my way.

Those who just ignore such situations don't even know what their missing. There are no better feeling than helping someone in need for no reason at all. I bet that the taxi driver won't have a care in the world for a while after this. Situations such as this makes all everyday problems seem smaller than an atoms nucleus and all with an good ending.

I guess what i'm saying is that if everybody stopped ignoring their surroundings we would not need a disaster to remind us of the beauty in life.
