Well, if you didnt think New York was a rat hole, now you know.



A Bronx man wound up in the hospital Saturday after the concrete collapsed beneath his feet, sending him tumbling into a decrepit basement -- where he encountered a mischief of rats, according to local reports.
He was waiting at a bus stop in the Belmont neighborhood when video shows the ground giving out beneath him, sending him tumbling between 12 and 15 feet underground.
NBC New York identified the victim as 33-year-old Leonard Shoulders.
“He was just standing and the sidewalk just -- It was like a suction,” his mother, Cindy White, told the station. “Like a sinkhole. He just went down.”
Then it got worse.
White told the outlet her son was afraid to call for help because he didn’t want to open his mouth around the rush of rats below. But bystanders could see him and alerted authorities.


Rescuers removed him from the pit about 30 minutes later, and he was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital across the street, where he was stable, according to CBS New York.
His brother, Greg White, told the New York Daily News that the injuries included a broken arm, broken leg and a scraped face.
The paper also published a photo of the hole that shows just a couple of inches of concrete above a dark, empty space with no visible support.

So it is true; New York SUCKS

Rattiest cities are run by Democrats. Why is this no surprise?

Ghetto Fabulous!
That's true and it brings me to two observations. One, if it were a Republican run city the sidewalk wouldn't have caved in because it would have been maintained. And two, if it did cave in by a freak accident, the guy would have fallen into a pit filled with something nice like kittens or puppies. Rats are a Democrat thing. Stick with Trumpy
I guess they never heard of rebar,'

You got that right. I grew up in Chicago which was run by a Democratic machine. The cops and politicians were all on the take, all the elections were dirty and bribery was rampant. One of the aldermen was a member of organized crime.

Have you noticed that the Democrat run cities are all infested with the organized crime mob? New York, Chicago, Detroit and Philadelphia are the worst.

That is all through that city. All underneath the cities are tunnels filled with rats.
NYC is a sanctuary city for rats.

We know all about the dimorats in NYC, but what’s the wild rodent situation?

Or the builder sold the rebar and just poured the cement and the inspector checked it off with some cash in an envelope.

NYC has had a rat problem for over a Century...if this is news to anyone, step up your Worldliness.
A rat problem is one thing. Rat problems being dominated nationwide by Leftist run cities is very notable, in a bad way.

You misspelled "awfully."

The guy chose to live in NY City over any southern red state citing education levels.

They usually wait until after the inspection, then remove the rebar before pouring using the rebar for the next section and inspection...

Saves money that way...
