It was a night like any other in Florida. Then a noise caused Jeremy Bush to run to his brothers room. It was a loud crash, and Bush's brother was screaming out to him. But, when Jeremy arrived in what had been his brothers room, there as nothing there. The sinkhole had swallowed the entire bedroom and Bush's brother with it.
Bush tried to rescue his brother, he pushed at the rubble until rescuers arrived and told the man he had to leave the area because the whole floor was going down. Four other people including a 2 year old escaped the 1970s suburban home before the sinkhole swallowed it all up.
They sinkhole is 20-30 feet across and 30 feet deep. Rescuers held little hope that Jeff Bush survived. The state of the art equipment did not detect any life. So, the operation now is set in motion to recover a body. But they are not ready to get in it yet. They have yet to find the dimensions of the chasm.
Rescuers are being very cautious. Family members have a faint hope that Jeff might have found an air pocket, but they do think that it is a faint hope. For Jeremy Bush, the loss of his brother is still hard to bear. "I swear I heard him screaming for me." Bush stated.
