The Florida sinkhole that killed Jeff Bush in his bedroom earlier this year.

The sinkhole that swallowed a man in his bedroom has had a video released showing people what the Florida sinkhole looks like inside.

A contractor reportedly shot the footage of the killer sinkhole, and the victim's brother has said that it shows the reason why rescuers had no chance of recovering his body.

Brother of the victim, Jeremy Bush, reportedly jumped into the sinkhole to try and rescue his brother, 37-year-old Jeff Bush, earlier this year. he has now told reporters that he is happy the footage has been released so that people can see what the 60 foot deep sinkhole really looks like and understand in more detail what happened.

"It'll help people understand what was going on and what the county saw that everybody else couldn't see," Jeremy said, according to Fox News. "I think about him all the time and I hear him in my head hollering for me to help him still. It's just really hard."

Jeremy was ultimately unable to get to his brother who had already been sucked down the sinkhole, and a Hillsborough Sheriff's Deputy eventually had to come to Jeremy's aid to help him out.

The new video footage of the Florida sinkhole was taken by a Hillsborough County contractor, who reportedly used a camera on the end of a pole that he stuck through Bush's bedroom window.

Jeremy has told Fox: "You can't even see his bed. It looks totally different than from when I seen it. It's much deeper. Like I said, you can't see anything that was in there, than what I seen before when I first jumped in."

The home has since been demolished after authorities determined that it was too dangerous to continue the search for Jeff Bush's body. The sinkhole was then filled in to try and help the stability of the surrounding areas.

Jeremy, obviously distraught when rescuers called off the search for his brother's body, has said that now that he himself has seen the footage he understands why his brother's body could not be recovered.

"When I first jumped in the hole it didn't seem like it was that deep. And seeing the video and what the county showed it is totally different than what I thought it was," he said.
