BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A minivan with a father and child inside sinks into a Northeast Baltimore street.

It all happened as a result of a water main break along Sheldon Avenue.

Neighbors say crews had replaced the break two days ago, but something went wrong.

When the car drover over the patch in the road Friday, it all caved in.

Neighbors sprang into action to help.

“I ran over to him. He was getting out of the van and water up to his knees, and I asked him if he was alright, did he need some help? He said his son was in the back,” said Bernard Williams, neighbor.

Both father and son escaped unharmed.

DPW crews are back on the scene fixing the water main.
