Caught on video: Woman rescued from her car moments before it was swallowed by a sinkhole in El Paso


EL PASO, Texas — Dramatic video shows a woman pulled from a car stuck in a sinkhole in downtown El Paso on Tuesday night.

Moments before her car was swallowed by a flooded sinkhole, firefighters and good Samaritans rushed to save the woman.

In the video, you can see several people holding the car in place as firefighters pulled it out the back window.

The sinkhole opened after a water main burst, authorities said.

The video shows how deep the sinkhole was when crews used a backhoe to pull the car out of the bottom on Wednesday.

The woman was not seriously injured.
