Workers destroy Florida home with sinkhole

As a giant crane plunged into the Florida home where a massive sinkhole swallowed a man whole, pieces of the family's lives were pushed into public view.

Walls with picture frames on them came crashing down. Baby toys and clothes on hangers were raked across the ground.

A woman wept as an official handed her a framed portrait. Others lovingly salvaged military awards, a Bible, a pink teddy bear, and an American flag that hung near the house's front door.

Workers started demolishing the blue, one-story home as carefully as they could Sunday to try to salvage belongings for the family of the victim, Jeff Bush.

That delicate process will continue Monday.

    it really would be problematic if these holes are so deep that they calibrate molten rock to the top...
