FLORIDA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - We're getting a look inside the sinkhole that swallowed a Florida man while he was sleeping in his bed.

And, now a second sinkhole has opened up just about three miles away in a family's backyard.

Officials don't believe that one is threatening any homes at this point.

Crews are still assessing the danger from that original sinkhole. It is believed to be at least 30 feet wide and possibly 100 feet deep.

They're still not sure if they'll be able to recover the victim's body.
