It's worse than that - nothing ever even gets to cross the event horizon from
our point of view (because time slows to the point where the universe comes to
an end before anything actually gets to the event horizon.)
(Which BTW is what originally led me to the notion that there is nothing in a
black hole.)
This also means that the growth in mass of a black hole must come from
matter/energy accumulating in a tight orbit (just) outside the event horizon.
