"We had no idea where it was, we just happened upon it," Mike Murphy, CEO of Scott, Murphy and Daniel Construction said.

Send this guy to the Indian Ocean.

I'd like to take this time to point out that when a sinkhole opened up under a bedroom in Tampa and swallowed a man, rescuers said that it was too dangerous to try to recover the body.

But, if it's a Corvette.....

And when they rebuild it, it will cease to be original. Just like the guy, it will never be the same, just bury it and move on.

FTFA: "Originally, we thought we had to remove the boulder itself to free the vehicle....But we were able to free the 1.5 without addressing the boulder as it turned out it was not directly resting on the car, which was a great advantage to us."

Duh.

That should buff right out.

My God, it's full of Corvettes!

The 1.5 Millionth....

That just doesn't sound right for some reason. Not sure why.

Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.

To be fair, the corvette is much larger and easier to hook onto to recover.  The man may no longer be in one piece and tends to deteriorate more rapidly than a corvette (this point is debatable as some GM owners can attest to). Also, not all sinkholes are the same and the geological conditions may be more stable or unstable in a given location after a collapse so that one area may be more safe to operate in than the other.  I am sure if it was feasible they would have attempted a body recovery as no one likes human remains left uncollected, but sometimes it just isn't possible. We are going to see this repeated in the landslide in Washington where many individuals simply can't be recovered due to the hazardous conditions.

Why dig up a body you're just going to rebury anyways? Fill in the hole, plop a headstone down, and call it a day.

He wasn't a special edition human.

Then they just should have found the keys and they could have driven it out.
