The home of the Florida man who disappeared into a sinkhole is being destroyed. Rescue workers called off the search for Jeremy Bush on Saturday and confirmed his Tampa home would be bulldozed over safety fears. 36 year old Jeremy Bush was in his bedroom on Thursday night when the ground opened up beneath his home and took him and everything else with it. Five other people who were in the house at the time escaped unharmed as the earth crumbled.

Interesting words: sinkhole (hole made by collapsed ground), call off (cancel something that was planned), beneath (under), crumbled (break into pieces)
