Florida authorities continue careful demolition of house that swallowed man

(970 WFLA) --  Hillsborough County is finishing demolition at 240 Faithway Drive in Seffner, knocking down the last wall of the house where a sinkhole swallowed a man alive later today (Monday), which could give experts their first unhindered look at the gaping maw that swallowed a man alive. 

Hillsborough County communications director Willie Puz says the goal is to remove the slab on which the house sits, to make the sinkhole visible, and to make sure no additional debris from the house falls in. 

Relatives of victim Jeff Bush gathered a few keepsakes from the house before demolition. The 37-year-old man is presumed dead as a result of the collapse.
