Man pulls wife from sinkhole

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -

A northwest Atlanta homeowner is fuming over city officials response after a sinkhole opened up in his front yard.

Aaron Kent says the sinkhole wasn't in front of his house Tuesday night. Wednesday morning, his 74-year-old wife fell inside as she was leaving the house.

Kent says the sinkhole was around 8 feet deep and 12 feet wide.

He said city officials told him he may be responsible for fixing the hole.

City officials told Fox 5 the water line was privately installed more than a decade ago.

Kent and the city are currently working on some sort of assistance package.
