It’s been six years since a West Hill’s slide took out two houses just above Terwilliger Boulevard.
Sam Silverberg and neighbors rescued a woman from the house that slid off its foundation and crashed into another house at the bottom of the hill.
They dropped a ladder over the side as the woman grabbed on to the lower rung and was hauled to safety.
No one was hurt, but hearing the news that those in Oso weren’t so lucky is hard for Silverberg and his wife.
There’s now an empty lot where the house once stood.
