This photo taken on January 13, 2020 shows Chinese rescuers watching as a vehicle is lifted out after a road collapse in Xining in China's northwestern Qinghai province.

Footage captured at the scene shows people running from the collapsing road. Almost 1,000 rescuers, 30 vehicles and two excavators have been dispatched to the site.

Rescuers watch as a bus is lifted out of a sinkhole in Xining in China's north-western Qinghai province.

Video apparently shot by security cameras just after the accident showed the bus gradually settling into the hole while people nearby scrambled for safety. An explosion was seen inside the hole, possibly a result of the rupture of gas or electricity lines.

Six people were confirmed to have died and 16 others are being treated in hospital, the Xining municipal government said at a news conference on Tuesday morning.

The bureau said the bus had been raised from the collapsed 80-square metre (860-square foot) section into which it had fallen.

Firefighters descended into the chasm that opened up and swallowed the bus to rescue the victims.

Sinkholes are relatively common in China and are blamed on construction works and rapid expansion in some areas.

Search and rescue work was underway and the cause of the accident was under investigation, the state-run CCTV broadcaster said.

Several deadly sinkholes have been reported in China in recent years.

In 2018, four people were killed after a sinkhole opened up on a busy pavement in the city of Dazhou, south-west China.
