Default Guy goes to bed, SWALLOWED BY A SINKHOLE

http://www.cnn.com/2013/03/01/us/flo...ole/index.html

Quote:
A 36-year-old man disappeared Thursday night when a sinkhole opened up under his bedroom in Florida, swallowing him as his brother tried to rescue him, authorities said.

Right after the ground started to give way in his home in Brandon, his brother frantically tried to keep him from sinking into the hole, an emergency official said.

The first deputy on the scene pulled the victim's brother from the edge of the growing chasm, said Jessica Damico, a spokeswoman for the Hillsborough County Fire Rescue.

Authorities have been unable to contact the man as the sinkhole expanded. The house was deemed unsafe for rescuers, Damico said.

Late Thursday night, the hole was about 100 feet wide and still growing, authorities said.

Area homes have been evacuated.

Mother Nature officially daring humans to keep f*cking around.

Is there anything more terrifying than this? Dude went to sleep and a hole in the Earth opened up and swallowed him.

Are you f*cking kidding me?

Apparently the first cop on the scene pulled the brother out and said it was deep enough that the brother couldn't reach the top with his arms fully raised and that was early on, it just kept getting bigger.

This is seriously pretty terrifying to think about.

Also, how the hell's a cop get there that quick?
