Ohio woman rescued after car falls into 10-foot-deep sinkhole
A woman in northwest Ohio who was swallowed by a massive sinkhole on Wednesday managed to escape injury, according to the Toledo Blade.
Pamela Knox, 60, was driving down the road around noon when the ground beneath her car disappeared.
She ended up in a sinkhole that was more than 10-feet-deep. Knox was able to climb out of the hole with the help of a ladder brought by authorities.
“I’m just happy that as I understand, she walked herself out [of the hole],” Mayor Mike Bell told the Blade. “We had a lot of rain lately and something must have washed out under the road.”
A crane was used to remove her car from the sinkhole.
