Emergency services rush to scene of World's Fair Park green space

Emergency services were called to the scene of an undeveloped 125,000-square-foot lawn at the World's Fair Park Tuesday, after reports that there is not enough concrete or building development there. Eyewitness reports said that families were playing with their children and picnicking on the grass, making it virtually impossible for concrete to be poured or for heavy machinery to dig in the area. Emergency workers acted quickly to discuss plans for development. "My God, it was awful," said Bill Lyons, deputy mayor and the city's chief policy officer. "There was so much grass. People were throwing Frisbees and children were laughing. A young couple was taking a nap on a blanket. I just burst into tears right on the spot. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this green space at this terrible time. We're going to do our best to get something built here immediately."
