| No Comments

Florida officials say they will stop looking for the man who is lost in a sinkhole after it opened up underneath his bedroom Thursday, officials said.

Jeff Bush, 37, is presumed dead after a sinkhole, now up to 60 feet deep, opened up under his bedroom, according to the LA Times.

Jessica Damico, a spokeswoman with Hillsborough County Fire Rescue, said workers will attempt to recover his body after the ground is determined stable enough to support heavy machinery, reported USA Today.
