--Brother now says authorities could have done more to save him.
Last Thursday, Jeff Bush, 37, was in his bedroom in Seffner - a suburb of 8000 people 15 miles east of downtown Tampa - when the earth opened and took him and everything else in his room. Five others in the house escaped unharmed.
The sinkhole was estimated at 20 feet across and 20 feet deep. It caused the home's concrete floor to cave in around 11pm. It gave way with a loud crash that sounded like a car hitting the house.
The deadly sinkhole was revealed today beneath the ruined family home. Crews have been working since Sunday to clear the house. This was so they could better see the depth of the problem and figure out how many other homes could be in danger.
