A parking lot collapsed into a giant sinkhole at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem on Monday afternoon, a mere hour after being opened to the public for the first time, Israel Police reported.
No injuries were reported, though eight fire and search-and-rescue crews are still searching for people who may be trapped underneath the rubble, Jerusalem Post reports.
Security footage shows three cars falling straight into the sinkhole. It is still unknown if there were people inside, though police later added that the likelihood of people getting stuck is low.
Due to concerns over another collapse, the area has been declared a danger zone, and the building has been cordoned off. Additionally, traffic has been cleared out and blocked in the area around the hospital.
