A construction crew using coordinates from a global positioning system demolished a 60-year-old home in Carrollton earlier this week. Problem – it was the wrong house.

The home’s owner, Al Byrd of Atlanta, said he heard about the mistake when a neighbor called him to tell him the house he grew up in — along with his family heirlooms — had been destroyed and thrown into dumpsters.

Luckily, no one was living in the house at the time. Byrd said his father built the house by hand in 1950. He is also talking with an attorney but hasn’t made any decisions on what to do.

He said he’s gotten an apology from the companies who made the mistake. If it were my house, aplogies would only be the beginning of recompenses I’d expect from these dipnoids.
