Searches ongoing for man sucked into earth below swimming pool

Searches continue for a missing person in Karmei Yosef where a sinkhole opened up below a swimming pool during a party earlier.

Teams have identified “tunnels” in the earth under the pool and are searching through them, officials say.

“The longer it takes the chances go down but we are still hoping to find him alive,” a spokesman for police says. “There is a great depth [under the ground] with paths in many directions. The suspicion is he was sucked into one of them.”
