    Road crew accidentally buries drunken man alive

    NEW DELHI — Road construction workers in central India killed a man when they accidentally buried him in a pit while repairing a road, police said Tuesday.

    The road repair crew failed to notice that a drunken man had fallen into a crater on the side of the road in Sleemanabad, a village in Madhya Pradesh state.

    Working in the evening, the workers dumped gravel and an asphalt mixture into the pit, burying the man, before using a large roller to smooth the road, said Constable Dhruvsingh Thakur.

    The death was discovered when villagers noticed that part of the man’s hand was visible in the road and police dug out his body on Monday.

    The man, in his mid-30s, had gone to a village fair and later stopped at a liquor store. He was heading home when he fell into the pit and lost consciousness, his neighbors told Thakur.

    Two workers on the road repair crew were arrested and have been charged with homicide.

    Poorly maintained roads with large potholes are common in India.

    I was outraged when I read this article. I wanted to offer the family my condolences, so I called Comcast customer support to talk to his brother.

    Why the fuck would anyone want to go that cesspool? My ex-girlfriend lived there for a year doing archaeological work, and her stories would lead me to believe that India should be sunk like an old battleship.

    According to one of my Indian IT colleague, the IT divisions of most corporations will collapse if not for them.

    Who knew Indians were good road filler ? We should start using them as well. :)

    I wonder if syrians would work in a pinch ? :scratch:

    According to all of the ones I worked with (read that as fixing their shit), I would say most IT companies will collapse because of them.
