Most Accidents Happen at Home

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.

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.
All of us living in potential mine subsidence areas (which is almost everyone in Springfield) should sleep a little easier now.
