Man assumed dead after sink hole opens under bedroom story image
BRANDON, Florida (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – A Florida man is missing and police presume he's dead after a giant sinkhole opened under his bedroom in Florida.

It happened Thursday night in Brandon, Florida. That's just outside of Tampa.

People in the house said they heard what sounded like a car crashing into the home.

Jeremy Bush ran into the room to find the whole floor had fallen into the hole. Just part of his brother's mattress was visible.

He tried to save his brother, but couldn't reach him.

“Just to get closure I guess. Make sure he's not dead, see if he's alive. I know in my heart he's dead, but I just want to be here for him because I love him. He was my brother, man,” said Bush.

It's still too dangerous for search crews to go into the hole. Authorities say they worry the hole is still growing and that the house could collapse at any time.

They have also evacuated nearby homes.
