BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — The National Corvette Museum is planning a special ceremony to mark the year anniversary of a sinkhole that formed and swallowed eight prized corvettes.
The hole opened up when the Bowling Green museum was closed, and no one was injured. But the 40-foot-wide by 60-foot deep hole became a popular attraction for tourists, with visits to the museum increasing last year by 66 percent.
Security camera footage showing the floor’s collapse has been viewed nearly 8.4 million times on YouTube, the museum said in the fall as workers arrived to start plugging the hole. Repairs are still under way.
Media report the museum has events scheduled Thursday afternoon to mark the year anniversary.
