Andre Hall went away for the holidays and when he returned, he was in for the surprise of his life. The Pittsburgh home he had spent weeks fixing up and restoring had been demolished by mistake.
All that remains of Hall’s house is a lot full of hay.
Sadly, mistakes like this are not uncommon. Back in April, demolition crews destroyed the wrong house in Texas.
When he was interviewed about the mix-up, Hall even had a court order in his hands that read “DO NOT DEMOLISH”.
Turns out, it was the house next door to Hall’s that was supposed to be demolished. More in the video below.
