Huge sinkhole swallows bus, kills six in China

Watch: 6 killed as giant sinkhole swallows China bus, pedestrians

They're still working to determine how many people were on the bus and around it at the time of the incident, while they continue looking for casualties.

Identification of the victims is underway while the cause of the accident is being investigated.

The road collapsed beneath a bus stop outside a hospital in the city of Xining, in Qinghai province, one of China's poorest regions.

Six bodies were recovered as of Tuesday morning after a bus fell into a hole caused by a road cave-in in northwest China's Qinghai Province on Monday.

As the surveillance footage shows, the bus had just pulled into the bus stop outside a hospital.

With 35 games remaining in the Sharks' season, Marleau could pass Jagr for third on the list with 1,735 games. Game notes Dallas D John Klingberg (lower body injury) skated on Saturday and will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

As many as 1,000 emergency workers and 30 vehicles rushed to the site, the emergency management bureau in the city of Xining said. All the injured are in stable conditions.

In 2018, a sinkhole opened up on a busy sidewalk in the city of Dazhou in southwestern China, killing four people, the BBC reported. They used a crane to remove the bus from the hole, which measured almost 80 square metres (860 square feet) in area.

Similar incidents of sinkholes opening up on Chinese roads have happened in the past, and the country is thought to have a big problem with sinkholes-an issue put down to rapid development and poorly planned infrastructure.

Numerous other incidents have not resulted in deaths, such as a 2015 sinkhole in the Chinese city of Harbin which was caught on camera swallowing a minibus carrying five commuters. Several more people on the street fell in the hole as it widened, swallowing the front end of the bus and a street sign.
