On March 3, a Florida sinkhole house was partially raised after a wrecking ball hit the abode that swallowed the man who lived there. According to Reuters, the hard-working crew took on the job on Sunday so that the contents of the scene of the tragedy could be saved even though Jeff Bush, the man who was affected, has been deemed dead even though his body has not been recovered.
By way of background, 27-year-old Bush was sleeping when the bedroom in which he was positioned in the one story home in suburban Tampa was suddenly consumed by a sinkhole. The geographical occurrence, one said to be nearly impossible for experts to predict, caused the problem and inspired Jeremy Bush to try to save his brother.
Indeed, Jeremy jumped into the sinkhole to try to help his sibling but the attempt was unsuccessful and this Bush brother had to be saved as well. Meanwhile, a handful of others were in the domicile as the lot prepared to go to bed on Thursday. A loud crash and a scream from Jeff alarmed the rest of the inhabitants.
The resulting hole measures about 30 feet wide and measures about 60 feet deep. Cranes took down the eaves of the house's garage and then took on the master bedroom.
Florida sinkholes are commonplace because of soft bedrock that is found in the Sunshine State. Still, the house that was partially raised on March 3 still caused a tragedy that could not have been predicted. Now the house is considered "seriously unstable" and so a 100-foot safety zone has been erected surrounding the domicile.
That said, this Florida sinkhole is now causing another home that is located new to the home that is affected to become a safety risk so the raising of the property has turned into an emergency situation.
