    NO ATTEMPT to save or retrieve this mans remains. Why?? Because he was a man with little means?
    In most parts of our America, this man would have been removed from this relatively small sinkhole, come hell or high water.
    Entombed !!
    All of those involved in Florida should be ashamed of themselves!!!

      There was an effort to rescue him and the ground was so unstable that it kept shifting. The decision was not made lightly but losing life trying to find his body was the right thing to do. They spent hours with very sensitive equipment that can pick up sound, there was none. This poor man and his family have suffered enough without horrible posts like this. Please pray for them and all those who tried their best to save or find him.

      How do you prepare for eternity? Always carry change? Have a bag packed?
