Golfer swallowed by sink hole

ST. LOUIS — A day of golf turned into quite the experience for a golfer near St. Louis.

The father of two was on the 14th hole in the middle of the fairway when he fell into a hole.

Mark Mihal dropped about 18 feet into a sinkhole and landed on a pile of mud.

"It was just darkness down there so I was like someone get me out of here now," Mihal said.

It took his friends about 20 minutes to rescue him using a rope and a ladder.

Mihal suffered a dislocated shoulder.
