How tragic. To think you could be swallowed into the earth in your bed.
Last I heard the hole is growing in depth and width or at least in depth. The poor guy is most likely dead. No signs of life they say and the
unstability is making it dangerous to extract his body
They say sinkholes are common in Florida due to limestone.
I feel awful for the brother who was trying to dig him out but had to quit once rescuers arrived and deemed it unstable.
He says it sounded like a freight train coming through the house, heard his brother scream, went into his room and it was all gone along with his
brother. He thought he heard him scream for help a few times after he was sucked in. Could only see part of his bed sticking out. Grabbed a shovel,
started digging, but a deputy pulled him out and he feels his brother isn't being helped out. Some equipment was lost in the hole. He's on CNN now
crying nobody is digging him out and praying there's an air pocket in there.
He is saying in August or September insurance came to home and even checked for sinkholes, no risks were found.
