(WHAS 11)--We are getting a firsthand look inside the sinkhole that swallowed and killed a Florida man in February.

A video was shot by a contractor where you can see a deep dark pit in the middle of the bedroom of Jeff Bush with just edges of the floor around it.

In February, as Bush was asleep in bed, the 60 foot deep sinkhole suddenly opened up beneath him.
 
His brother jumped in to try and save him but it was too late.

Jeremy Bush says now that he's seen the video of the sinkhole; he understands why his brother's body could not be recovered.

Bush’s home was torn down along with two others nearby.

Officials say soil samples taken in the neighborhood have deemed the rest of the street safe.
