HUGE sinkhole growing in Kansas

Posted: Updated:
SHARON SPRINGS, K.S. -

People in western Kansas have been flocking to one man's pasture to see a sinkhole with their own eyes.

It's over 200 feet across and 90 feet deep.  People there say it seems to have shown up overnight in the town of Sharon Springs.

 "I'd seen pictures and I knew it was deep but I didn't think it was this deep," said Gavin Mote who came out to see the sinkhole.  "You get out here and you get a whole different perspective on how deep it is."

It appears the giant hole is going to get even bigger.  The local sheriff says there's no stopping it.  "Man had nothing to do with this, this is a god thing," said Sharon Springs Sheriff Larry Townsend.  "There's no oil well around here, there are no irrigation wells anywhere near.  This is something that just happened."
