    I saw this on the news this morning. Very sad listening to the guy who jumped into the hole trying to save his brother. He heard him calling, but couldn`t unbury him.

    Very sad.

    Such a terrible situation...losing a family member and their home in the same night. I wonder if their home owner`s insurance would cover this..or if the city would step in considering it is such a big hole? So very sad...

    @ McThstlpnts - by now I`m sure there is a Facebook page dedicated to them with a link to donate money. They were probaby renters so they could turn a very good profit here.

    Profit doesn`t bring back the dead brother, or replace family photos & things like that, but still, it could be a nice chunk of change when they`re done.

    Hopefully the sinkhole will consume the entire state of Florida.

    It`s a VERY "slow news day" when the BBC WORLD NEWS covers this story.

    ONE guy dies... in a hole... = international news?

    This video was unspeakably boring, BUT I thank @MrOrange both for the OP and especially for the "update". :-)

    Better than 1/2 the crap posted on IAB...

    That was a stupefyingly dull video. Why not just take a still photo? Or show the interviewee?

    What a waste of time. Did we really need to hear the stupid conversation leading up to the interview. I was hoping this was footage of it happening, at the very F`ing least it should be the house that fell in, so we can know it happened.
