A section of a downtown commercial street swallowed a backhoe on Monday as city crews were getting ready to repair a leaky water main. The backhoe had started to chip at asphalt near the corner of Ste-Catherine and Guy streets when the ground crumbled beneath it and the heavy machine tumbled in.

The driver of the backhoe was not injured but was taken to hospital to be checked out as a precaution, city officials said. Emilie Miskdjian, a spokeswoman for the Ville-Marie borough, said the city was alerted to the possible water leak on the weekend.  A section of a downtown commercial street swallowed a backhoe on Monday as city crews were getting ready to repair a leaky water main.
