A couple were swallowed by a 10ft sink hole on the pavement after getting off a bus in South Korea.

The pair had to be rescued by fireman and reportedly suffered minor injuries.

The footage, which was captured on CCTV by a passing bus, show the man and woman getting off a bus in the Yongsan area of Seoul and then suddenly vanishing.

The sinkhole was found just next to a construction site where two 39-storey apartments blocks are being built.

Seoul Metropolitan City officials and the Korean Geotechnical Society members were investigating how the sinkhole was created.
