The tragic but humorous story of the man who returned home only to find it torn down by a construction company engaged in "urban renewal".
Chang, who lived on the fourth floor, said the building had collapsed and accused SWJ of tearing down his home.I guess they expected the fourth floor to just hang in the air...
Chang said that after he left the meeting, in which the two sides failed to reach an agreement, he was hit by a scooter and had to go to a police station to give an account of the accident, which he said was a ploy by the firm to stall him.
SWJ president Cheng Ko-shi (鄭可熙) said the company did not mean to tear down Chang’s home, but only the first three floors, whose owners had agreed to the renewal project.
