Brooklyn sidewalk caves in, swallows woman

`A woman out walking Monday was swallowed by the sidewalk when it caved in under her.

The woman, 64, fell into a sinkhole about 5 feet by 2 feet wide and about 5 feet deep in front of a house in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn.

Firefighters rushed to the woman’s aid, using metal hooks to pull concrete chunks off her before strapping her to a stretcher and removing her from the hole.’
