BRANDON, Fla. (AP) - The public is invited to a memorial service for the man who was swallowed by a sinkhole in his home near Tampa.
A service for 37-year-old Jeffrey Bush is planned for 7 p.m. Tuesday at Bell Shoals Baptist Church in Brandon.
Bush died Feb. 28 when the earth opened up under his bedroom floor. His brother, Jeremy Bush, heard his screams and tried to save him, but he was rescued by a sheriff's deputy.
Officials later determined the sinkhole was about 60-feet deep. Bush's body was not recovered before workers filled in the hole.
The family has asked for donations to the Sinkhole Family Relief Fund. Checks should be made payable to the Brandon Foundation and sent to P.O. Box 3197, Brandon, FL 33509, Attn: Sinkhole Family Relief.
