A man screamed for help and disappeared as a large sinkhole opened under the bedroom of the house, his brother said Friday. The brother told rescue crews he heard a loud crash near midnight Thursday, then heard his brother screaming. The brother called police and frantically tried to help. An arriving deputy pulled him from the still-collapsing house. There's been no contact with the man since then, and neighbors on both sides of the home have been evacuated. (AP Photo/Chris O'Meara)

    Sinkholes are fairly common in central Florida, but it’s not often that a person gets trapped in one. When police arrived at Jeremy Bush’s house in Seffner, Florida, on Thursday evening, they found him trying to pull his brother, Jeffrey, out of a 100-foot sinkhole that had apparently opened up and swallowed one of his home’s four bedrooms. The sheriff’s deputy was able to pull Jeremy to safety, but they had no such luck with his brother, who disappeared into the hole. After losing sight of Jeffrey under the debris, rescuers sent cameras and listening devices underground, but no signs of life were found. He's feared to be dead.
