The road has since been sealed off.

KOTA KINABALU – A food delivery rider was able to cheat Death after CCTV footage showed him stopping in time and being mere inches away from a massive sinkhole.

In the video, vehicles could be seen carefully swerving away from the sinkhole which emerged at Jalan Telik Likas and driving into the opposite lane.

Thankfully, he did not suffer any injuries and was seen getting back onto his motorcycle and riding off.
