SEFFNER, Fla. (AP) - Officials say a sinkhole that swallowed a Florida man is seriously unstable and they think it will grow.
Hillsborough County Administrator Mike Merrill says no one can go into the house right now because they are afraid of losing more lives. Engineers say the soil around the house is very soft and there is a potential for another collapse.
Jeff Bush was presumed dead Friday after the earth opened up beneath his bedroom. Five other people were at the home when the bedroom floor collapsed late Thursday night, but no one else was injured.
