On Wednesday night, a 100-foot sinkhole opened behind a home in Seffner, FL, swallowing an entire bedroom and most likely killing a man. According to authorities, their equipment hasn't been able to detect any signs of life, prompting them to conclude that 36-year-old Jeffrey Bush is dead. The man's brother, Jeremy, reportedly tried to rescue him, but a sheriff's deputy would have to rescue him from the rubble.

Janell Wheeler, who also resides at the homes, says "It sounded like a car hit my house." The hole grew from 30 feet to 100 overnight, and is reportedly still expanding. At the time, it's cause has yet to be determined.
