Sinkhole swallows man in bed

(TAMPA BAY TIMES) SEFFNER — A sheriff’s deputy plucked a man from an expanding sinkhole Thursday night, but neither was able to save the man’s brother from being sucked into the rubble, authorities said.

Early Friday, authorities said the site at 240 Faithway Drive had become too unstable to continue rescue efforts and the focus would instead shift to a recovery operation.

The sinkhole opened late Thursday in the home’s back yard, swallowing one of the home’s four bedrooms.
