Sinkhole swallows Florida man

Associated Press
Hillsborough County, Fla., firefighters keep a safe distance from a home, where a sinkhole opened up underneath a bedroom late Thursday evening and swallowed a man,  in Seffner, Fla. on Saturday, March 2, 2013.   Jeffrey Bush, 37, was in his bedroom Thursday night when the earth opened and took him and everything else in his room. Five other people were in the house but managed to escape unharmed. Bush's brother jumped into the hole to try to help, but he had to be rescued himself by a sheriff's deputy.  (AP Photo/Chris O'Meara)
