    Authorities are still trying to recover the body of Jeff Bush, the Florida man believed dead after a sinkhole opened up beneath his room Thursday night. Rescuers say they can't venture into the sinkhole itself to uncover the body, since it is too dangerous. Even worse, the hole is still expanding, and the house could collapse at anytime. "Until we know where it's safe to bring the equipment, we really are just handicapped and paralyzed, and can't really do a whole lot more than sit and wait,"County Fire Chief Ron Rogers told reporters Friday. "It's a tough situation. It's even tougher for the family."
