The unimaginable happened in a Florida home this past Thursday evening. Jeremy Bush was and his family were preparing for bed when a “deafening noise” erupted from within the confines of the house.
Jeremy heard his brother, Jeff Bush, screaming from his room. He ran to his aid, but upon entering Jeff’s room all he saw was a wide hole with Jeff’s mattress strewn at the bottom.
Jeremy frantically scoured the hole in search for his brother who had been swallowed by the earth. Police showed up shortly after, and forced Jeremy out of the hole, informing him that it was still collapsing.
Jeremy gave a tearful account of the heart-wrenching experience in recent footage.
The sinkhole now stretches 20 feet wide and 50 feet deep. Such a shocking and unfamiliar tragedy has raised public interest into the cause of sinkholes.
In Florida alone it is claimed that thousands of sinkholes appear every year.
