Big hole in Florida is shown – level 2

Inside a house in Florida a giant hole opened in February. People have released a video of this hole. 36-year-old Jeff Bush fell into the hole while he was sleeping in his bedroom. When his brother heard him shout, he jumped into the hole and quickly tried to find him.

Mr. Bush is probably dead. People say they can't find any signs of life.

The risk of such holes is common in Florida because the ground is not very solid there. When rain water goes down into the ground, it changes the structure of the ground. That can create caves and then the holes.

Interesting words: while (when), common (normal).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
