Talk about your bad luck. I bet there’s no way this guy saw what was coming.
ALTA, California (AP) -- It was like a scene from a horror film: A 27-year-old man plummeted into a gaping hole that suddenly opened beneath a house, trapping him beneath foundation rubble and killing him.All of us living in potential mine subsidence areas (which is almost everyone in Springfield) should sleep a little easier now.
Authorities say the home, built in the 1980s, may have been sitting atop a decades-old underground mine. Recent rains could have softened the ground under the home, in an isolated area near Lake Alta.
