It was tragedy in paradise when the Kaloko Reservoir dam burst last March on the tropical island of Kauai, Hawaii, sending some 400 million gallons of water downstream and killing seven people in the valley below. At first, the flash flood from the dam break was simply believed to be a natural disaster -- the result of more than a month of heavy rain in one of the wettest places on earth. Nearly a year later, many residents question if it really was a natural disaster or if man had a hand in the tragedy. Why did a century old earthen dam that had held up during bigger rainfalls suddenly burst? ABC News Senior Law and Justice Correspondent Jim Avila reports on �20/20,� FRIDAY, MARCH 2 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Plus: It�s an age-old belief that somewhere on this planet, alive today, is someone who looks just like you. Bob Brown reports on photographer Fran�ois Brunelle, who has made it his mission to bring unrelated lookalikes from all over the world together for what he hopes will become an exhibit and book.
Also: With over 70,000 new videos posted everyday on YouTube alone, grabbing the online spotlight requires extra measures. As JuJu Chang reports, there is an alarming trend for some people, including a large number of teenagers, to post their acts of violence online-- from vicious attacks to schoolyard fights to random smash-and-grab robberies online. One teen tells �20/20�: �If you beat up somebody but nobody sees it, you don�t gain from that. If you beat up somebody and you film it and put it on the internet, then everybody can see it and everyone can respect you and everyone can fear you.�
�20/20� is anchored by Elizabeth Vargas and John Stossel. David Sloan is the executive producer.
