Bronx woman gets leg stuck in sinkhole

A woman was sent to the hospital after her leg fell into a sinkhole and got stuck in the middle of a Bronx street.



According to Marilyn Soler, she didn't see the sinkhole until she stepped into it while walking with her daughter on Neil and Bogart avenues Wednesday night. 



She says the fire department had to help free her leg, which was completely trapped beneath the concrete all the way up to her mid-thigh.



People living in the area say that the sinkhole had been there since winter, but it was quickly repaired overnight. 



Soler was released on crutches with a sprained foot and a torn ligament.
