Henrico Woman Rescued From Sinkhole

Posted: Updated:

Henrico firefighters rescued a woman from a sinkhole in a West End neighborhood Thursday evening.

The woman was investigating what appeared to be a sinkhole in the 1500 block of Bringham Road around 7:30 p.m. Thursday. While she was digging, another hole opened up underneath her, trapping her from the waist down.

Firefighters were called to the scene, and were able to rescue the woman from the hole. She was transported to the hospital as a precaution, officials said.

It's unclear what caused the hole to form.
