Giant sinkhole in Turkey terrifies residents

Residents of Konya Province in southern Turkey have spoken of their terror when a giant sinkhole suddenly appeared in a local field.

“We are very afraid (for) our lives. It is luck that no one fell into it,” said one local farmer.

Measuring 10 metres wide and 90 metres deep, the crater is thought to have formed in the space of 24 hours.

As if we needed something more to worry about…fracking may or may not be causing stuff like this but I bet it doesn’t help!
