this out, police in central california captured the exact moment a sinkhole opens up, wow, you can see the roadway actually open up and then collapse. so far a 12-foot by 50-foot section of the row way has fallen. it hit a sewage line 20 feet below. recent rains could have something to to with that collapse. yikes. jim, those are scary. >> it looks like our station parking lot right now good i was just going to say. >> i don't know about that. >> not the that bad but there are some things i get a little nervous. >> we have more incredible video to show you. >> yes, this is scary, watch as a crane drops a 70-ton air plane. someone do that, my goodness. it happened sunday at an airport in india. the crane was moving, and a324 training exercise and it slammed to the ground. we are told the jet was empty
at the time and no one was hurt. people were nervous laughing there so close to that. >> lucky you are not underneath it. >> everybody is okay. talking about something bad, sixers wrap up another dismal season tonight. >> but there are signs sixers could be ready to improve. our pat gallen has a look at this years sixers, what has to happen to get sixers in the win column just a little bit more. >> they could play better defense and score the basketball. easy, right. >> scoring points is the key. there is one player in particular that may hold keys to the future of the 76ers. we will get to that in just a moment. but lets look back at last night's game with the toronto raptors. sad face. nick stauskus they hope can be a piece of the puzzle as three-point threat. he throws down a one hander. sixers at this point down just
three. more saul castillo, off the miss, two hand put back. there was the not enough sauce in the world to stop raptors kyle lowery, connects. philadelphia native would send sixers to loss number 71 on the season. 122-98. seventy-one losses is a disaster but there is one player in particular who could set wheels in motion to make sixers a contender in the coming years, that man has not played in an nba game yet but hope is it is coming soon. joel embiid is that player and 7-foot two center has all of the tools to be the next great big man, he can shoot from the outside, great presence around the rim and is athletic but it all means very little unless he can get back on the court. after two surgeries, repairing the navicular bone in his foot he is still on the men. i spoke with doctor eric croft an orthopedic doctor from temple university about the kind of foot injury embiid is attempting to return from. >> the bigger you are the more stress you put across all
joints and that magnifies down to the foot. the bigger individual you are, more stress across that area which is a high stress area. that is predisposing factor, these fractures even when treated perfectly there is no 100 percent guarantee. about ten or 15, to 20 percent will go on and need secondary procedures. >> one career will hopefully begin soon while another run comes to an end. after 20 nba season, kobe bryant's final game is tonight. the 37 year-old bryant has scored over 33,000 points, he is a five time champion and 18 time all-star, but i'll be honest, i have troubled rooting for the guy. even though he is from the area, i didn't like him. he was a laker. i was a sixers fan. the game that kobe bryant had spoke for itself. i have learned to respect his game and always tough to see such a great player hang them up. last few years really rough watching kobe's body fail him. he gave basketball fans some
pretty impressive moments over a long career but all comes to than a end, all great things must come to an end, guys. >> twenty years. >> long time. >> thanks, pat. phillies are getting involved in the fight against hunger n south philadelphia yesterday, the phillies joined philabundance for the families kick off event. you can take part by taking food donations to the ballpark or participating in a theme day on april 30th. well, it is 6:50. there is a lot coming up on cbs this morning. >> gayle king joins us life from new york with the preview. good morning, gayle. >> i can tell you exactly what we have coming up at 7:00 brook and jim, how is the new gig going. >> so far, so good but it is early though. >> we are cheering you on here at cbs this morning. now to found are and former facebook president sean parker donates 250 million-dollar to fight cancer. plus look at largest donation ever for immuno therapy, and
