VIDEO: A 40-year-old woman was rescued by firefighters and search-and-rescue team members after becoming trapped in a 25-foot-deep sinkhole in Fontana. The incident was reported just outside a mobile home in the 8200 block of Cherry Avenue, prompting an urgent response from firefighters and an urban search-and-rescue team. The woman's disappearance was discovered when her children noticed that she was missing. The woman's children heard their mother screaming and then told neighbors about what happened. Their father, who was at work at the time, was contacted and immediately rushed home. Shortly after 10:15 a.m., the San Bernardino County Fire Department said the woman was "awake and talking."
