Wrecking Crew Hits Wrong Building

`A wrecking crew in New York City punched a hole in the wrong building, forcing startled tenants to evacuate, city officials said.

A crane operator Saturday put a 10-foot gash in the foundation of a three-story building in Queens that had not been scheduled for any work, the New York Daily News reported Sunday.

“As soon as I heard a big bang, I woke up,” said Andrew Albarracin, who lives on the second floor of the building. “I hear the banging every day, so I went back to sleep. But this was louder than before. Next thing I knew, I woke up to a fireman at my door telling me I have to evacuate.”‘
