Short Sale Hardship Reaons

I'm wondering if anyone has had increased crime get approved as a reason for doing a short sale? I've had economic circumstances (job loss, pay cuts), divorce, death, illness, and relocation. But I've now got a circumstance where the homeowners purchased at the peak of the market (2005) and their home is now worth about $500K instead of $700K. They're doing great financially but the area around them has decined and crime has increased. Recently there was a drive-by shooting on their block. They don't feel safe anymore. Do you think this might qualify as a "hardship"??
