    Florida man killed in sinkhole

    Here is the story. Crazy how these things open up. He was in his bedroom when the sinkhole just opened up under the house and he got sucked in and is presumed dead.

    When I was a kid, there was one over toward Sebring that swallowed over half of a car dealership.
