An orthopedist was swallowed by a hole that suddenly formed under his feet while he was walking along a sidewalk in Cachoeiro de Itapemirim, in the south of Espírito Santo, on Monday morning (1/4). The incident took place in the Gilberto Machado neighborhood.

The identities, including the name and age of the victim, remain confidential, although it has been confirmed by the local city hall that the affected individual is an orthopedic doctor.

A surveillance camera captured the exact moment of the incident, showing an individual wearing blue, who was walking down the street carrying a bag, when unexpectedly the ground beneath him collapsed, swallowing him into the crater that formed.

The healthcare professional was quickly taken to a private hospital, however, details about his health status have not yet been released.

The area where the accident occurred was promptly surrounded by Civil Defense, while the municipal administration focuses on investigating the causes that led to the formation of the crater.
