VIDEO: Sink Hole Swallows Florida Resort

Florida, which is prone to sink holes, has seen another dramatic manifestation of such limestone erosion at a Disney resort. The building featured in this video is the Summer Bay Resort in Clermont, west of Orlando. A sink hole rapidly opened up under one of the buildings at the resort, and the damage was caught on camera.

“I was in the tub when the ‘boom’ went off and the tub literally popped up and came down,” Debbie Ward told MyFoxOrlando.com. Suspecting an earthquake, she left the tub only to “hear the cracking and the ceiling and glass breaking and we decided to get out as soon as possible.”

Reports of windows breaking and large pops from the building cued the occupants of the building – 20 of its 24 rooms were filled – that something large was going on, and the building was able to be evacuated before the 40 to 50 foot sinkhole crept under the building and caused it to collapse.

Just before this happened, all sorts of indications gave warning something was about to go down. Luis Perez, for instance, went to the front desk to report that the lights went off in his room.

“I started walking toward where they were at and you could see the building leaning and you could see a big crack at the base of the building,” said Perez, 54.

In an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Maggie Ghamry said when she first heard glass breaking she suspected it was children in the halls.

“Next thing I know, people are yelling ‘get out of the building, get out of the building,’” she said.

Though a Florida man was killed last March when a sinkhole opened from right under his bed, such fatalities are rare, and in this instance nobody was swallowed by the gaping hole.

Owners of the resort ponder, meanwhile, where and how they will rebuild their lost building.
