(970WFLA) A 36-year-old man is missing after a sinkhole collapsed a house and consumed the bedroom where he slept late Thursday night. Firefighters have been on the scene all night, at 240 Faithway Drive in Brandon.
Jessica D'Amico with Hillsborough County Fire Rescue says the man's brother heard the screams and climbed into the sinkhole to search. Hillsborough deputies ended up pulling that man out of the hole.
Bracken Engineering estimates that the sinkhole is 100 feet across, underground, with a 15 foot hole at the surface, inside the house. They estimate the hole to be 50 feet deep. The hole has collapsed the interior of the house swallowing two bedrooms but most of the exterior walls remain standing.
