Mark Mihal was having a good opening day on the links when he plunged into a sinkhole and landed 18 feet down with a painful thud, and his friends managed to hoist him to safety with a rope after about 20 minutes.
The experience gave Mihal quite a fright, particularly after the recent death of a Florida man whose body hasn’t been found since a sinkhole swallowed him and his bedroom.
The Missouri sinkhole is the latest in a long line of sinkholes that have caused damage and anguish.
