Man falls through pavement into 'rat-filled chasm'
A man was trapped in a hole teeming with rats for half an hour after a New York City pavement collapsed underneath him.

The victim had been waiting for a bus in the Bronx when the concrete cracked open and swallowed him whole. The 33-year-old was hospitalised with a broken leg and arm after firefighters worked to extradite him from the pit.
