Efforts to rescue a Florida man who disappeared Thursday night when a sinkhole opened under his bedroom are being discontinued, according to Hillsborough County Administrator Mike Merrill.
Merrill says the operation is moving to a demolition phase.
The sinkhole that swallowed up Jeffrey Bush is 20 feet to 30 feet across and may be 30 feet deep, said Bill Bracken, president of an engineering company assisting emergency workers. The land around the hole is unstable and also is threatening a neighboring home, authorities say.
