I don't consider myself a handyman, but I do know enough that you don't go ahead with a project until you've found any problems and solved them. If you knew there was water I don't think this joker ever should have gone ahead.

If it feels like you could fall right through, I wouldn't doubt that you could. If you are really nervous about it you could get a sheet of OSB or something else to spread the weight out over more area.

You need to find the water leak and stop it. This may involve calling someone to your house. Is this in a crawl space or above a basement? How old is the house?

I agrre with floorcraft I would get the "handyman" out there to see what he thinks.
