In a shocking incident, a parked car was entirely swallowed by a huge sinkhole in a residential complex in Mumba. A video of the incident created a buzz when surfaced online and went viral on social media.
The incident reportedly happened in the parking lot of a residential complex of Mumbai’s Ghatkopar area. The video was posted on Twitter by a user named Subodh Srivastava.
The video shows a blue coloured car going down the sinkhole completely. It shows the car’s bonnet and front wheels enter the sinkhole first and then the rear part of the car follows and within seconds the vehicle completely disappears under the water. As per the viral tweet video, it was later discovered that it was a covered well under the parking lot and the car went down the well completely filled with water post heavy rains in the region. The well was reportedly closed by the residential complex society and was made into a parking area earlier.
Mumbai has been receiving heavy rain showers for the past five days. With the onset of the monsoon, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has also predicted heavy to very heavy rainfall in the city over the weekend.
