Not sure if this had been posted before, but this is insane: Some videographer captured part of ol' Slumpy falling apart. Literally.

Sad. The house Albert Kahn designed and ignorance and fear destroyed.

Rhymeswithrawk, great find. It looks like they caught it by coincidence. Is there any way they could have caused it for the camera?

A major part of the front facade just happens to fall off as someone is filming it?

Even if they did throw things to start it falling (seemingly unlikely) it was inevitable to happen anyway and we're lucky to get to see footage of it!

LMich., if you read my post on this in the other thread, you'd see why. I already apologized for it.

I think both AIW and dETROITfUNK got one upped! Whoever THOUGHT they won the bet between you two needs to buy this guy with the video a beer. I've watched that house crumbling in on itself for years now. The fact that some out of towner catches it on video during a visit blows my mind.

I dunno, it seems almost too coincidental but really, how would anyone have knocked that section down? More power to the man behind the cam!

Uh-oh. Now my head has exploded while trying to calculate the odds of someone catching this on video. I have died.
