Demolition Team Tore Down the Wrong House, Thanks to Google Maps
A tornado damaged a bunch of homes in a suburb near Dallas back in December. A demolition team was supposed to tear one of them down on Tuesday.
They probably should have taken a few seconds to double-check the address. They ended up tearing down the wrong house. The one they were supposed to demolish was one block over. Both homes had tornado damage, but the one they tore down by mistake wasn't as bad. The owners were planning to fix it up.
Apparently the mix-up happened because the demolition guys used Google Maps to find it, and it pointed them to the wrong address. There's no word yet on a lawsuit, but we can assume that one is coming. Someone from the demolition company already admitted it's their fault though.
