    And was he constructing alone?. If he had a helper near by, he would have been rescued. To bad indeed.

    Governments that encourage septic latrines in the 21st century should be dispatched to the dinosaur age. In 2020 all citizens should have flushing toilets indoors, power and tarmac roads outside their homes!
