Medical News today is reporting that a Lincoln County surveyor has found a massive hole in an island surveyor’s field.
The report says the hole was discovered by a county surveyors assistant on the day of the survey.
The Associated Press reports:The hole was identified by a Lincoln surveyors staff member as the result of a malfunction of an automated computer system that was unable to detect an unusual hole in the surveyor field.
It was found Friday.
A Lincoln County spokeswoman confirmed to AP that the hole had been reported in a field in the hamlet of Pascagoula on the eastern side of Lake Okeechobee, about 35 miles (64 kilometers) east of Orlando.
The county, which has a population of nearly 16,000, said in a statement that the surveyors office was “in the process of cleaning up the hole” when it was discovered.
It added that the county has been working to repair the field to prevent any future problems.
