Destroys Wrong House And Blames Google Maps!

According to a report by WFAA, the Billy L. Nabors Demolition company, based in Seagoville, Texas, made the unfortunate mistake of tearing down a home at 7601 and 7603 Calypso Drive in Rowlett, Texas, when instead it was supposed to demolish a house at 7601 Cousteau Drive, one block away.

The devastated home owners, who were in the process of deciding whether they'll repair or rebuild their house, contacted the demolition company, but initially received no apology, according to the report. Instead, a Nabors employee sent them a screenshot, via a text message, showing that the Google Maps arrow for 7601 Cousteau points at their home.

At the time of this writing, the error was still visible on Google Maps, with both addresses pointing to the same location, as seen in the screenshot below.
