Family rescued in building collapse

A Kentucky family of four makes it out alive after a building collapse.

The Kasee family lived in a downtown Beaver Dam building, that was almost one hundred years old. Time took its toll, when a huge part of the building caved in, blocking the road below.

Bonnie Kasee says she felt the building start to shake, and grabbed her sleeping six-year-old granddaughter.

"I heard a crackling noise and I didn't have an idea, I didn't have a clue what it was," said Kasee.

When police arrived, they found the four family members huddled together on a second-floor balcony, waiting to be rescued. No one was hurt.
