Sinkhole opens in Napoli: a garbage truck is swallowed up
A large sinkhole opened in front of the Basilica of San Mauro in Casoria, in the province of Naples. In the abyss, tens of meters wide and deep, a waste compactor has precipitated.
The driver, recovered by the fire brigade, is in the hospital for tests. The road was closed to traffic and cordoned off: seven buildings were evacuated.
According to those present, there was a strong smell of gas in the area. Casoria is not new to such cases: a few weeks ago a sinkhole threatened the buildings near the town hall. Also in that case the road was closed to traffic and cordoned off, creating many inconveniences to the population.
