INDIA Team Latestly|

A video of a Hyundai Venue car sinking into a caved-in portion of a parking lot on the premises of a Ghatkopar residential society went viral on social media on June 13. A 67-year-old doctor, also the car’s owner, shot the incident that lasted for less than a minute. Police said the parking area was constructed over an old well in Ramnivas building. By evening, the authorities started the process of pumping water out of the collapsed portion of the parking space to locate the car. The traffic police authorities, with the help of the BMC officials, managed to remove the car from the well around 9 pm. Around 8.30 am, Mahadev Shigwan, who washes the cars of the residents of Ramnivas building, noticed that the car was tilting. The residents said the building was constructed more than 80 years ago and the concrete portion around 40 years ago, reported The Indian Express. It was built over a well that supplies water to the residents of Ramnivas building. The other vehicles parked near the car, including one right next to it, were not affected.
