Sinkhole sucks Florida man from his bedroom into the earth - U.S. News

Officials and engineers are searching an unstable area of land after a sinkhole enveloped a Florida man’s bedroom in the middle of the night, sucking him down into the earth.

The man has not been heard from since the 20-foot-deep by 20-foot-wide hole opened underneath the Bush family’s Hillsborough County home late Thursday night, sending part of the house plummeting but leaving the exterior remarkably intact.
