People Living In Tunnel In Las Vegas

Filed Under () at 1/14/2011 12:45:00 PM

Under the gliss and glam of casino’s and hotels in Las Vegas lies a dark and sad place; a 200 miles long flood tunnel that is occupied by homeless, drug addicts and criminals. About 1000 of them are living there, can you imagine? A lot of them have made rooms in the tunnel with furniture and their belongings to make it more homely.

They have no choice but to live with the risks from disease, creepy insects and rats, and the dirty water around them, not the mention the lack of daylight. Many of them live by begging in the streets and raiding bins and ships, but some of them still have decent jobs at the hotels. What a contrast to the things that are happening above the surface.
