So the poor bastard lived?
In France, Jacques LeFevrier left nothing to chance when he decided to commit suicide. He stood atop a sheer cliff and tied a noose around his neck. He tied the other end of the rope to a large rock. He drank some poison and set fire to his clothes. He even tried to shoot himself at the last moment. He jumped and fired the pistol. The bullet missed him completely and cut through the rope above him. Now freed from the threat of hanging, he plunged into the sea. The dunking extinguished the flames and made him vomit the poison. He was dragged out of the water by a kind fisherman and was taken to a hospital, where he died of hypothermia.

Given that it's only a three story building,
I don't see the motivation for anyone to deliberately do anything to this building.
And it looks like it's in a residential neighborhood.
But then again, you never know. [...]
I hate it when that happens. They dont have facts so they make up their own.

I hate the rumors that go around with stories like this. Ten minutes ago they stated on MSNBC the town house was valued at 10 million and now they are saying the building was vauled at 5 million
Cub reporters suck and if they are not cub reporteers they should know better not to release info until it is confirmed.

As a small aside to this thread, does anyone think that the media blows NYC stuff like this WAY out of proportion? Two or three years ago we had 3 or 4 houses in the northern suburbs blow up from an exploding gas main and it barely got national attention 3 days after the fact.
I admit that the first thing I saw on cnn.com was the red breaking news banner, "NYC", and "explosion." My first thoughts were "oh great here we go again." Is that what the media wants up to think? Or is NYC just that much more news worthy than Chicago?

From CNN -
NYC Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta says a gas explosion appears to be the cause of the building collapse.
