This is terrible, sounds like a scene from a horror movie
From the article:
Officials and engineers are searching an unstable area of land after a sinkhole enveloped a Florida man’s bedroom in the middle of the night, sucking him down into the earth. The man has not been heard from since the 20-foot-deep by 20-foot-wide hole opened underneath the Bush family’s Hillsborough County home late Thursday night, sending part of the house plummeting but leaving the exterior remarkably intact. “They heard a sound they described as a car crash emanating from the bedroom,” Hillsborough County Fire Chief Ron Rogers said at a Friday morning news conference. “They rushed in. All they could see was part of a mattress sticking out of the hole. The floor ofthe room had opened.” At that point, one of the Bush family members jumped into the hole to try to rescue his brother, who the family could hear – but not see – in the sinkhole, Rogers said.
I recently read about this. What a horrible event.
Can't even imagine the grief of the victim(presumed dead), family members and rescue personel unable to safely reach him, due to the currently expanding sinkhole, making rescue/retrival extemely dangerous as the house is collapsing.
I actually shed a tear when reading this elswhere.(CNN I think)
