WATERLOO, Ill. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A day of golfing turned into a rescue mission in Illinois.
Mark Mihal was on the 14th hole at Annbriar Golf Course in southern Illinois when a sinkhole opened beneath him.
The pit that swallowed him was 18 feet deep and 10 feet wide.
Mihal was pulled to safety with a rope after the fall dislocated his shoulder.
He says the course is one of his favorites, but he is having second thoughts about returning now.
