Tuesday, in Bergen op Zoom, the fire brigade rescued a woman who fell in a sinkhole in her garden. The hole was caused by water from a garden hose of the neighbor. That was reported by the police. Omroep Brabant mentioned a "sinkhole".

Because of the woman’s size, she couldn’t come out of the hole by herself and the fire brigade had to assist. She was taken from the hole with a stretcher. She was further OK but was taken to the hospital for examination.

The garden is part of a property at Tolseinde in Bergen op Zoom. The hose of the neighbors probably leaked water for a couple of days. The hole was 2 meters wide, 1 meter long and 1 meter deep.
