Just disintegrate. See a much more detailed answer I gave to the same question from someone else.
Rather than me explain it to you, check out Neil Tyson on this he does a much better job.
Hi Shaunt and Horselover101,
They would disintegrate. The different forces on the different parts of the body would probably cause them to stretch out in some strange way, which is called spaghettification, and they would probably be exposed to a lot of heat and radiation – the combined effect of these things would probably be disintegration. Black holes are constantly sucking up things, and even light can’t escape them (which is why they are black) so you wouldn’t be able to get back out again and they don’t actually lead to anywhere else. You can read more about black holes at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_hole and spaghettification at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spaghettification if you are interested.
Spaghettification. Great word. Great explanation.
