A sink that consumed an important part of a suburban road was discovered by two teenagers who noticed a broken water pipe.

The two 13-year-old boys cycled down the suburban street of Taupo, near the center of the northern island of New Zealand, when they noticed a fence began to sink into the ground.

Jono Park called emergency services, while Bailey Malloy went to alert neighbors who were located directly near the sink.

The children immediately moved their bicycles to safer ground and called their parents.

Jono's mother, Anna Park, counselor of the Taupo district, quickly relayed the information to the council team.

"Jono called 111, the fire department, and Bailey went to 12 and 14 Arrowsmith Ave since they were right where the incident was happening. Fortunately, nobody was home, "Park told the New Zealand Herald.

In 45 minutes, the path began to collapse, and in a short time one lane of the street gave way completely.

The sump was between five and six meters deep and it took out a berm of grass and a fence.

The neighbors who heard the opening of the sink told stuff.co.nz that it sounded like rocks crashing on a hill.

The Council confirmed that the sink was formed by a break in the main pipe of 150 mm, which affected up to 20 surrounding properties.

The sink has already been evaluated and is not believed to represent any additional risk to the area.
