Contractor Demos Wrong House

Imagine coming home from work and your house is completely gone. Maybe just a heap of bricks and a hole where the basement was. This is pretty much what happened to Al Byrd when a demolition contractor used GPS coordinates to get to the job site and accidentally destroyed the wrong house. This really happened. According to the story the contractor has apologized for the mistake, so Al has that going for him. In our eyes, nothing says 'I'm sorry' like a couple million in damages, but there's no word yet if Byrd is going to litigate these morons back into the stone ages. We hope he does.
