Wish I'd get paid to watch a hole grow. I'd suggest getting a track hoe and pushing rest of house into it then filling with bamboo roots / plants.

It might be a good idea to retrieve the poor guy's body first.

Seems strange that the concrete floor buckled in just that one room and that if that room had carpet or sheet vinyl the guy might have escaped. I don't think anything like this has happened before in Florida.

Did u just get off the bus from Chicago. Sound like the rest of those snowbirds come down here thinking they know everything. They gave up hunting that dude. Plug that hole before any thing else falls in like those sluts from up north here letting anything in after a few drinks.

News showed a track hoe on news taking down the house. Maybe At Large would like to buy a swimming hole on my land. I'm just waiting until summer to fill it with water.

They could have shut the natural gas line down and sent a team in there with lights & repel equipment.
I guess the guy wasn't that important.

No photos from inside the house of the sinkhole? Makes you wonder what is really going on. I bet the state is going to Eminent Domain the entire area to drill for oil.
