Sinkhole swallows man in his bedroom
In a matter of seconds, the earth opened under Jeff Bush's bedroom and swallowed him up like something out of a horror movie. About the only thing left was the TV cable running down into the hole.
Bush, 37, was presumed dead Friday, the victim of a sinkhole — a hazard so common in Florida that state law requires home insurers to provide coverage against the danger.
Crews with heavy equipment on Sunday began the demolition of the Florida home over the huge sinkhole.
The search for Bush was called off Saturday, and a heavy machine with a large bucket scoop was moved into position Sunday on what was believed to be solid ground.
