Mishaps can be avoided with caution and care, while some are such that one would never see them coming. Can you imagine walking around in a mall or a departmental store and the floor just happens to collapse? Sounds impossible, but the video we will show you today proves otherwise. A woman in a clothing store is seen falling victim to an unfortunate incident in China, where a mall floor gave away without a warning. The entire accident was captured on CCTV, which has since gone viral.

The CCTV footage shows a woman walking around a fashion store located on the second floor of a mall in Zhenjiang, Jiangsu province. Without warning, the floor collapses, engulfing the woman and two clothing racks. Reportedly, a construction worker was also trapped in the debris along with the woman seen in the video. Fortunately, they were both rescued, although they sustained some injuries. They are now in a stable condition after being taken to a nearby hospital.

The mall’s manager stated that although the cause of the collapse is still under investigation, they suspect it was caused by damage to a load-bearing wall. The accident reportedly occurred on March 23 and the mall was sealed for a few days until repair work was complete.

Last month, a sinkhole opened up beneath an office building in Sydney, prompting a response from twenty firefighters. Approximately 20 individuals were evacuated from the vicinity, while firefighters put in efforts to stabilise the site.

The proximity of the building to the M6 tunnel project in the southern part of the city has raised concerns about the safety of workers currently engaged in the project. Fortunately, no one was inside the building when the collapse began. NSW Premier Chris Minns stated that structural engineers will be examining whether the sinkhole is connected to the construction of the M6 tunnel.
