Search for body in Florida sinkhole called off

Florida

SEFFNER — The effort to find the body of a Florida man who was swallowed by a cave-in under his Florida home was called off Saturday and crews planned to begin demolishing the four-bedroom house. The 20-foot-wide hole is almost completely covered by the house and rescuers feared it would collapse on them if they tried to search for Jeff Bush, 37. Five others in Bush’s house escaped unharmed in the Thursday accident.
