CLERMONT, FL (WESH)  An apparent sinkhole has caused a villa at a Clermont, Florida resort to partially collapse while another section of it is sinking.

All 36 families sleeping in the two buildings evacuated said that it was Richard Shanley who made sure each and every one of them got out alive and unscathed.

"I'm just a run-of-the-mill person. I did what I had to do and acted as I had to," Shanley said.

Shanley was just five minutes into his shift when a guest flagged him down. He then knocked on every single door, getting people out as fast as he could from buildings 104 and 105.
