    Can you imagine being in your bed room and the floor just falls and you end up in deep hole getting buried alive. The hole is actually inside the house though the entire house is above the cavity. How many people check for sink holes under their homes before building or buying? I didn’t.

  3. McCullough says:

    Now that’s getting up on the wrong side of the bed.

  4. LibertyLover says:

    The entire state is one big frakking sandbar!

    The least little water line and leak and you have a hole.

    • Mr Diesel says:

      Nice, but no it isn’t a sandbar. There are limestone formations below FL with huge caverns filled with fresh water. At any time there can be a collapse of a cavern below and guess what? Sinkhole. It might not collapse today or tomorrow but chances are good that it will.

      Ask any FL cave diver.

      I can’t imagine losing one of my Brothers let alone to something like that.

      • LibertyLover says:

        That’s what hate about blogs.

        You can fart but nobody smells it.

      • I'm ugly and my mother dresses me funny says:

        When I lived in Orlando my across-the-street neighbor was a cave diver. Every few months you would hear him crank up his compressor in the middle of the night because his club was gathering to go retrieve a body from a cave. I guess that was part of the attraction for them.

        • Mr Diesel says:

          I would not dive anywhere I could not drive my truck into. I can’t imagine taking my gear off and pushing it through a little hole just to see what was on the other side.

          Yes, dying in a cave dive is part of the allure.

  5. deegee says:

    It sounds like something out of a horror film.

  6. plarsen says:

    Damn big alligator in underground river

  7. Guyver says:

    Sucks to be him.

    • So what says:

      Unfortunately I suspect that at this time the correct tense would be sucked to be him.

  8. msbpodcast says:

    I bet it started because of a long-lasting slow-drip leak in the bathroom just washed away the building’s foundation.

    I’ll say it again: Florida, our most fucked up state.

    • CrankyGeeksFan says:

      About 3 or 4 years ago, a years-long leak from a water main in downtown Tampa caused a street to cave-in just as you described; although technically, it was not a sinkhole.

      This house is still standing & nobody knows why so it probably wasn’t the scenario that you described.

  9. orchidcup says:

    My grandpa used to say, “When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.”

    I don’t know what grandpa would say for this situation.

  10. sick sense says:

    I applaud the rescue workers for keeping a straight face.

  11. CrankyGeeksFan says:

    It’s now 30 feet across and 20 feet deep; apparently, still within the house. The home’s owner is in North Carolina and says the home passed a sinkhole inspection last August and is insured for sinkhole damage.

  12. That’s one big drop down the hole of life

  13. ReadyKilowatt says:

    That has to be the most boring video of one of the most interesting stories of the week. Guys, it’s TELEVISION! We need footage of the hole, not some fat dude enjoying his 15 minutes of fame!

  14. BigBoyBC says:

    I’m surprised that the construction of the house would allow the floor, in just the bedroom, to collapse. Age and condition of the house I’m sure is a factor.

  15. Horrorzontal Drilling says:

    I blame it on fraking in North Dakota.

  16. Tim says:

    Golly, All that fancy peek-under-ground radar tech and they can’t find the guy because it’s just too unstable. That’s ok, because tomorrow they will push the rest of the house in with bulldozers and seal with concrete trucks (and concrete).

    Otherwise: “What’s that Lassie? Obama(blue-gummed, half-hatian, bush-with-a-tan, meat-puppet, nwo spokeshole) has been swallowed by a sinkhole? And he got his dick all wrapped up in the cotton ginny? And he burst into flames? And the Tuskegee placebo didn’t clear his syphillus?” Bless you, Lassie; Bless you.

      Wow. The interactions of your medications produces an interesting result.
