The Sad Side Of Life

An elderly Chicago couple have been found alive under a pile of garbage in their house after neighbors became concerned about their welfare. The couple, believed to be in their 70’s, were living in absolute squalor when a pile of crap presumably fell on them. The house was virtually knee deep in garbage and food waste and police had to call the fire department because the stench was too bad for them to step foot inside. Both remain in a critical condition in hospital. It is unknown how long both had been trapped under the rubbish.
