Swallowed by a Sinkhole

Horizon, 2013-2014 Episode 6 of 12

In February 2013, a hole opened up beneath a home in Florida, and swallowed a man.

Jeff Bush was asleep when a sinkhole opened up beneath his bedroom. Despite the efforts of his brother to rescue him, Jeff was never seen again and his body was never recovered.

Professor Iain Stewart travels to Florida to try and understand what killed Jeff, and why the geology of this state makes it the sinkhole capital of the world.
