HOLLAND, Mi., (AP) Crews demolished a Park Township home on Friday, Nov. 22, that was barely hanging on to a bluff over Lake Michigan.
A contractor said he was hired by the homeowner to tear down the house off Lakeshore Drive north of Camp Geneva. They used an excavator to knock it down, sending some debris down a steep cliff and into the water.
Erosion linked to high lake levels washed away much of the bluff, leaving the houses underside hanging out over the lake. Parts of the foundation had already collapsed, so looking up at it from below Friday morning before demolition, massive holes could be seen in the bottom.
