Sinkholes that appear without warning have become a common phenomenon in China in recent years, tragically swallowing vehicles in many cases.

Last week, a 30-meter sinkhole opened up in the city of Fukuoka, Japan. The ground caved in and electricity was cut off in the area. Fortunately, no injuries were reported.

But what’s even more amazing is that Japanese workers were able to repair the sinkhole in just a 48 hours. Not only were they able to fill up the hole, they repaired the sewage pipe, traffic lights and utility pools that were damaged during the incident.
