The bedroom area in which a man was swallowed up is shown very clear. The sinkhole was about 20 feet wide and 50 feet deep on Saturday and as you can see, no chance of every recovering him. The authorities are in the process of pouring gravel down the hole to help secure from getting any larger.

I saw on the news that 40% of the country is sinkhole-prone because of the underground limestone, which disintegrates easily with a high water table. Oregon has some sinkholes, but they're mostly because of burst pipes. We're lucky to have mostly basalt underground, but some limestone. These are amazing photos of sinkholes, Jan.

What a horrific way to die! I feel so sorry for the brother not being able to do anything.

bradjan

I agree, he did call out to his brother to save him. Brother could not and he almost lost his life.
