That’s pretty scary.
Via NY Post:
A woman visiting her parents’ Long Island burial plot descended into more than despair — she sank hip-deep into their grave, a lawsuit claims.
In the real-life horror show, Joanne Cullen bent down to fix a bow on a wreath by the headstone when a sinkhole formed and began to “swallow” her up, according to court papers.
“It caused her to fall forward and smash her head on the tombstone,” cracking a tooth, her lawyer, Joseph Perrini, told The Post.
She then tried to “bounce back and she started sinking into the ground and grabbed the sides of the tombstone,” he said.
The stunned North Bellmore, LI woman cried out for help, but no one in the graveyard could hear her screams.
