Man falls into 18-foot sinkhole while playing golf
I am terrified.
Well if this isn't the most terrifying thing I've ever heard about happening on a golf course, I don't know what is.
St. Louis golfer Mark Mihal fell 18 feet down a sinkhole in the middle of the fairway last weekend during a round of golf in Waterloo, Ill.
Here's Mark with his first-person account:
I felt the ground start to collapse and it happened so fast that I couldn’t do anything. I reached for the ground as I was going down and it gave way, too. It seemed like I was falling for a long time. The real scary part was I didn’t know when I would hit bottom and what I would land on.
You should read the entire story about how one of his friends went in after him, made a makeshift sling with his sweatshirt, and helped hoist him onto a too-short-for-the-hole ladder.
Between this and the Florida bedroom sinkhole incident I suddenly feel like I need to take a long cross-continent flight somewhere.
