Accident in Moscow: two vehicles fell in the foundation pit filled with hot water

At night of June 1 water pipes cracked in the North of Moscow, and the water having temperature of 70єC was squirted as high as the 6-storey building.
Ballast and sand were thrown to the windows of the neighboring houses.

As a result, the hole having area of 5 square meters, was formed, and the two vehicles parked nearby, fell into the hole. Three more vehicles were damaged by the thrown ground and ballast.

Rescue workers and fire brigades towed all the vehicles parked in the area. 87 buildings have been left with no hot water. The utility companies promise to restore the water pipeline in a day.
