Dramatic vision has emerged of a woman being swallowed up as the floor of a shopping centre suddenly collapses in eastern China.

The woman was shopping on the second level of a mall in the city of Zhenjiang in Jiangsu province when a security camera captured the incident.

A construction worker was working on the floor below when the collapse happened, according to the People’s Daily Jiangsu. 

Both the woman and the construction worker were trapped but freed by emergency crews and sent to a nearby hospital. 

Mr Huang, the representative of the mall, told reporters at the scene that both were injured but in a stable condition. 

The construction worker sustained leg injuries from fallen debris, while the shopper suffered fractures, according to Mr Huang.

“As they are our customers, we, as the responsible party, have been actively handling the aftermath and providing necessary assistance,” Mr Huang said.

The cause of the collapse is still under investigation.
