The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said the hole opened up around 1 a.m. on private property along Boggy Creek Road, located near Orlando International Airport.
Deputies arriving at the scene discovered “a large fracture in the ground between two lakes that had collapsed” that is estimated to be at least 30-feet wide.
