Jeff Bush is presumed dead after a sinkhole opened up under his bedroom in Brandon, Florida, reports CNN (video below).

Police were called to the scene last night and found the hole to be about 100 feet wide and were unable to make contact with Jeff Bush.

Jeremy Bush, who was home at the time, said he ran into his brother's bedroom when he disappeared into the sinkhole Thursday night, but could not save him.

"The floor was still giving in and the dirt was still going down, but I didn't care. I wanted to save my brother," JeremyBush told the Associated Press. "But I just couldn't do nothing."

“There is no evidence of him being alive,” said Jessica Damico, a spokeswoman for the Hillsborough County Fire Department.

Damico said the hole was still actively developing and was not man made.Authorities have evacuated the neighborhood.
