Construction workers in Lorain, Ohio, were using a giant power saw when the spinning blade came off, and left a 3-foot gash in a vacant house. Neighbors figured out what happened when they checked a security camera.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Lorain, Ohio construction workers were using one of those giant power saws, it used a big circular blade to slice into the pavement. Only the spinning saw blade somehow came off. It rolled at high speed right up to a nearby house. Rachel Gayhard(ph) came home to find a three foot gash in her house, as well as a security video that revealed how it happened.

It's MORNING EDITION.
