A hole caused by a water main break in The Villages, Florida, swallowed a minivan Thursday, and two people were inside the vehicle.

Dave Harris lives nearby and said his wife drove by the spot where the hole opened just before the van fell into the road.

“I went inside to get her and to show my wife, and by that time, the water was halfway up the motor, the hood,” Harris recalled.

He said thanks to the help of a good Samaritan, both people inside the van got out safely.

The water main break and road have already been repaired.
