Moment Bronx man, 33, falls 15ft through sidewalk ‘sinkhole’ and is ‘swarmed by so many rats he couldn’t yell for help for fear they would crawl in his mouth’


A Bronx man was left horrified when he fell more than a dozen feet into a sinkhole that was swarming with rats, making it difficult for him to even open his mouth and call for help out of fear that the rodents would get in his mouth. Leonard Shoulders, 33, had been waiting on a bus at 3rd Avenue across from Saint Barnabas Hospital on Saturday when the sidewalk caved in. ‘It could have been anyone. It could have been anyone it was a whole scary situation. It was my son and thank God he’s alive,’ Cindy White, the man’s mother, explained to NBC New York.
