Man in New York falls into sinkhole full of rats

A man in Nerw York has fallen into a rat infested sink hole.

Leonard Shoulders was waiting for bus in the Bronx when concrete cracked open and he fell into hole.

Shoulders landed directly on to a pack of rats.

Shoulders broke his arm and leg in the fall.

He later said that “He couldn’t move, and the rats were crawling all over him. He didn’t scream, because he didn’t want the rats going into his mouth.”

Firefighters eventually took half an hour to extricate Shoulders from the rat-filled cavity. He was taken to a local hospital, where he is recovering.
