Sinkhole Swallows Tampa Man

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.
