Yesterday (24th) at around 8:30, a sinkhole measuring 0.5m wide, 1.5m long, and 3m deep in the sidewalk next to a construction site in Magok-dong, Gangseo-gu, Seoul occurred.

According to the fire department, a woman in her 20s who was walking on the sidewalk fell into a sinkhole and injured her arm and leg and was taken to a nearby hospital.

The fire department and the Seoul Metropolitan Government are investigating the cause of a sinkhole as a result of cavitation under the sidewalk due to construction at a nearby construction site.
