Are you kidding me? This is an actual thing that can happen? Goddammit.
A sheriff's deputy plucked a man from an expanding sinkhole, but neither was able to save the man's brother from being sucked into the rubble, authorities said.
Early Friday, authorities said the site at 240 Faithway Drive had become too unstable to continue rescue efforts and the focus would instead shift to a recovery operation.
The sinkhole opened late Thursday in the home's backyard, swallowing one of the home's four bedrooms.
Someone called 911, and a deputy reportedly found Jeremy Bush trying to pull his brother, Jeffrey, out of the hole when he arrived.
The deputy pulled Jeremy from the growing hole.
But Jeffrey Bush, 36, disappeared into the rubble.
Rescuers said the hole was 20 feet deep and 30 feet wide. Allow me an editorial JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESUS CHRIST here.
I can think of nothing more horrifying than considering the prospect of suddenly being sucked into a hellhole.
