Florida man missing in sinkhole

A Florida man has disappeared into a 20ft-deep (6m) sinkhole that swallowed up a bedroom in his house.

Rescue crews have not made contact with Jeffrey Bush, 36, whose brother heard screams shortly after the hole opened.

Officials in the town near Tampa have postponed further rescue efforts until they determine how much of the ground under the house is compromised.
