Officials have released video of the sinkhole that killed a man in his Seffner, Fla., home in early March. Jeff Bush, 37, was swallowed into the 60-foot-deep abyss.

The Florida sinkhole can be seen below, and it is MASSIVE:

The sinkhole video was taken by a contractor who put a camera on the end of a pole and stuck into the bedroom window of Bush’s one-story home.

The ground is still too unstable to walk on.


Jeremy Bush, the brother of the deceased, says that the sinkhole has become even deeper than when he tried to rescue his sibling that fateful day.

"You can’t see anything that was in there, than what I seen before, when I first jumped in," he told the Bradenton Herald of the shockingly deep chasm.

While Bush says he is glad this sinkhole can serve as a lesson to others, he is haunted by the loss of his brother and the geological phenomenon that killed him:

"I’m having a hard time dealing with this. It’s really hard not having my brother beside me. I think about him all the time and I hear him in my head hollering for help."

"It was much, much, bigger than I thought."
