Building crumbling into swamp
MORGAN CITY- A nearly $4 million visitor's center, paid for with some of your money, won't open. Instead, it's crumbling into the swamp of South Louisiana.
The Cajun Coast Visitor's and Convention Center was built to educate people about the state's culture. But during construction, something went wrong.
The building sank into the swamp, about five to six feet then split, like the Titanic, right down the middle.
Workers heard a sound Thursday and as they dropped their tools and got out, "it sank."
The center's director says the building is insured. But, that doesn't ease the pain.
That center was a little over a month away from being completed.
