Creepypasta #473: Sink
The rash of sinkholes appearing in the last decade succeeded in raising a few eyebrows in the petroleum industry. This was escalated even more so when the biggest to date opened in Russia. At 80 meters wide and no information on how deep, it confused most and plain scared everyone else. Not wanting to catch flak from the hippies that wouldn’t shut their hookah holes about the dangers of fracking, the decision makers decided to investigate the matter with their own people.
They sent a team of spelunkers into the hole attached to a few thousand meters of strong cable. Executives went about their business with the expedition in the back of their minds. Roughly 2 hours and 15 minutes later frantic phone calls from the site were made to their offices and conference rooms. Most of the cables had somehow been severed, and of the dozen spelunkers that entered the hole, only one was pulled out. She was dead and hardly recognizable. Due to the excitement and a garbled connection, the consensus of the room was that the voice on the phone said she was “deceased”. It wasn’t until later when the recording was analyzed that their mistake was recognized.
They didn’t say “deceased”.
They said “digested”.
