Konya Province, Turkey. May 17th, 2015.



A sinkhole measuring 7 meters wide and 30 meters deep appeared all of a sudden in central Turkey’s Konya province. Formed in the middle of a field, the crater is thought to have formed in the space of 24 hours.

Though no one was injured as a result of the ground caving in, locals were shaken over the incident. The sinkhole appeared as they were working in the field explained local farmer Fatih Biltekin, “We heard a loud and terrifying sound all of a sudden. We were afraid for our lives, we’re lucky no one fell into it.”
