Chinese state-controlled media outlets reported Thursday that a sinkhole opened and swallowed a security guard.

The 25-year-old man was working at a housing development when the ground under him collapsed. He fell into a sinkhole about 65 feet deep.

Rescue crews managed to pull him out of the sinkhole. He died at hospital later.

Chinese authorities are investigating this incident.
