Second Sinkhole Opens Up In East Boston

BOSTON (CBS) -- A second sinkhole popped up in East Boston overnight, causing more trouble for residents Tuesday morning.

The sinkholes were spurred a 10-inch water main break on Cottage Street on Monday evening, which flooded some homes and cars.

Photos taken by Boston firefighters showed a car that had to be pulled out of the initial sinkhole.
