Man Sinkholes have a high rate of receidivism huh? This was the womans second time being attacked by a sinkhole this year! These things are on par with rapists and pedophiles in my book.
But I'm going to call bull on the "There's no cell phone reception in a sink hole" comment. I can't help but notice that you're waiving around an I-phone. At the risk of offending Steve Jobs and ruining any chance the Alt-Tab has of being made into an App, don't you think the crappy phone you're hanging on to could have something to do with it? Maybe you were holding it in that "death grip" that Apple warns about. Because, though I've never been clumsy enough to be swallowed by a sinkhole, I have been in a basement, and without fail my phone will work in a basement. The signal may not be great, but it works, and that's with the added element of concrete walls and ceilings and shit, much more treacherous of an environment than a sinkhole.
