This Video Of A Man Playing The Piano Inside His Flooded Colorado Home Is Haunting
Last week, Colorado saw some of the most destructive flooding in the state's history. More than 11,750 people were evacuated from their homes, and at least 1,500 homes were destroyed. Mark Changaris and his roommate Stephen Smith watched their home fill with water.
This video captured the destruction of the home:
And then Mark did something unexpected:
The poetic moment is being described as "a lovely, contemplative moment amidst ruin." And the song, "Mad World," is exceedingly appropriate for the scenario. Mark and his roommates are safe and sound now, staying with family and friends. Mark told us, "The community support has been overwhelming, and the silver lining of this whole episode has been to remind me how truly giving people can be and how lucky we are to be surrounded by people we love."
