A man was left traumatised after falling into and becoming trapped in a rat-infested sinkhole for over 30 minutes when a footpath collapsed at a bus stop.

The terrifying incident happened on a busy street in the Bronx area of New York, in the US, on Saturday.

CCTV footage shows the man patiently waiting for his bus before a sinkhole appears in the pavement and swallows him up.

Stunned bystanders go to his rescue but are unable to pull him to safety as he lay trapped about 12ft below street level with a large number of rodents scurrying about nearby.

The man’s brother, Greg White, said his sibling was afraid to scream for help in case rats crawled into his mouth.
