    A large sinkhole opened under his bedroom. No signs of life have been found.

    A huge hole 20 feet deep opened up on the concrete floor under his bed.

    The house looks like any other house in the street. No damage at all. The sinkhole is on the inside of the house.

    Have just been watching this on the News. The house appears untouched from the outside. Very scary. :(

    It is very tragic. They showed his family speaking on tv. It was just awful to watch

    I was reading about this yesterday and where they live is called Sinkhole Alley. I can't believe anyone would be allowed to build a house there. Though I know that Florida is common for sinkholes due to the nature of the soil but this particular area was more prone to it.

    Try not to worry Mari









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
