I am still sitting here trying to think how I would feel as the guy who lost his brother down a sink hole. First of all what causes sink holes, and is there anything that we can do to safeguard ourselves from falling orey to one...no pun intended.
This is a oarticularly sad story because the brother of the victim heard his cries for help as his bed was swallowed up by this hole that appeared out of nowhere! "I heard a loud crash, like a car coming through the house," Jeremy Bush told CNN affiliate WFTS. "I heard my brother screaming and I ran back there and tried going inside his room, but my old lady turned the light on and all I seen was this big hole, a real big hole, and all I saw was his mattress." Bush frantically tried to rescue his brother, Jeff Bush, by standing in the hole and digging at the rubble with a shovel until police arrived and pulled him out, saying the floor was still collapsing.
Here's a video news report from a local news station with a pretty good explanation of what happened and how it could have happened.
Apparently Hillsborough County is part of an area known as "sinkhole alley" that accounts for two-thirds of the sinkhole-related insurance claims in the state, according to a Florida state Senate Insurance and Banking Committee report.
