"A gaping sinkhole has been growing for months, swallowing a Pittsburgh street and causing mounting concerns for residents"

This reads like an illustrated book for young children:

The enormous hole is surrounded by fencing and barricades, but continues to grow closer to homes. It currently spans from sidewalk to sidewalk, which forced the city to close the road.

However, the city apparently is not responsible for the repairs. A Pittsburgh spokesperson told Channel 11 that the matter all began as a private sewage problem with a private contractor.


“We are facing Halloween, which is a big deal in our neighborhood,” Dawson said. “We love to host the kids who come, but of course we don’t want them here now, this is a dangerous place.”


Wildlife, too, has been impacted, with a deer recently getting stuck in the massive pit.
