Man missing, brother rescued after giant sinkhole appears under house near Tampa





WFLA

A sinkhole opened up inside a Brandon, Fla., house Thursday night, trapping a man inside.

By Ian Johnston, Staff Writer, NBC NewsA
man is missing after a giant sinkhole appeared during the night under
his house near Tampa, Florida, a fire department spokeswoman said
Friday.

Damico, a spokeswoman for Hillsborough County Fire Department, said
first responders had been unable to make contact with the 34-year-old
man, who was presumed dead. She stressed his death had not been
confirmed.
Damico said firefighters were called to the house in
Brandon just after 11 p.m. Thursday and said more equipment was being
brought to the scene.
She said the scene was unstable and that rescuers had been unable to get close because of the danger.
Damico
said that the sinkhole was 30 feet across at the surface, but said
engineers had estimated that below the surface it could be 100 feet
wide, and 50 feet deep.
A deputy sheriff who was first on the scene pulled out the missing man’s brother from the collapsing house, NBC station WFLA.com reported.
"He
basically just reacted and did what he had to do to get that person
out," Lt. Donald Morris with Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office told
the station.
Dexter Barge with Hillsborough County’s Code Enforcement was also on the scene.
"It's
the only one we've seen that opened up in this manner there is no
evidence of the structure cracking or anything like that on the outside
of the house,” he told WFLA.
County officials said the house was
considered too unstable to continue rescue efforts on Friday, according
to the Associated Press.
