BUFFALO, NY - Buffalo city street crews say they are in the process of covering a sinkhole that suddenly opened up on Sunday afternoon.
It happened on High Street near Rose Street around 4 p.m.
When we arrived at the scene a man told us his 20-year-old son actually fell into the hole as it opened under his feet and had to be taken to the hospital.
"I received a phone call from a friend of his and he said … they were walking down the street and he fell in the hole," the man told us. "When he said he fell in a hole I couldn't imagine that it looked like this, but, yeah, it's real. ... That hole is deep."
We've reached out to Buffalo Police for confirmation about the young man falling in but still have not heard back.
We do not know how serious his injuries are. Erie County Medical Center later told us he was discharged from their emergency room.
