Seffner, Florida — A sinkhole that swallowed a man back in March of 2013 has reopened.
The hole is reportedly 20-feet in diameter, unclear of how deep. Hillsborough County Fire rescue is on scene at 240 Faithway Drive. Around nine residents heard a loud noise this morning and then discovered the hole. Currently the hole does not pose a threat to surrounding houses.
It is believed that this reopening may have been as a result from the heavy rains Pasco has seen in the past weeks.
In March the sinkhole opened and swallowed Jeff Bush, 36, as he was asleep in his house. Others in the house say it sounded like a car crash when the floors of two bedrooms in a house on Faithway Drive sank about 11 p.m.
Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Deputy Douglas Duvall burst into the house, saw his brother Jeremy Bush struggling and pulled him out. Both Jeremy and Deputy Duvall were unable to reach Jeff.
The body of Jeff Bush was never recovered and the house was torn down. The lot remains empty and there is a makeshift memorial at the scene.
