Just a few miles from Brooksville, Florida in Sumter County, a mine has collapsed and a man is trapped underwater. The phosphate mine located just off State Road 50 in Bushnell was being inspected when a wall collapsed and a man became trapped. The man trapped in the mine is feared dead.
The Sumter County fire department chief told CNN that rescuers are moving in with equipment to search for the man who had been inspecting the area when the wall around the mine collapsed. However, the area is extremely unstable so the heavy equipment needed to rescue the man will be difficult.
No further information has been released at this time.
