After watching the video, at the end of the article, I have two observations.  1) Itís a miracle the four people sleeping inside were not hurt.  2)   The house was/is extremely well built.

Well, one more observation...I despise all the clickable ads within web articles like this one.

I would be curious to know how the age was determined??  :P

I clicked but it also removed the pictures/video and moved the "femail" to the bottom.
