In a split second, the earth gave way. Luckily for these quick-thinking campers, they were able to escape with their lives.

A giant sinkhole, measuring 450-feet wide, suddenly appeared at a campsite near Queensland Rainbow Beach in Australia. The massive opening took up the space of an entire soccer field.

Emergency service crews helped 100 campers flee the area where the hole, 9-feet deep, engulfed most of the MV Beagle campsite.

No injuries were reported, but a mobile home, a car, a camping trailer, and numerous tents were swallowed.
