What a pity.

Student: Hi Albert. What does the phrase "What a pity!" mean? Can you give a sample sentence?

Albert: Sure. Mmm.. You know I live near the beach. Last night there was a huge downpour striking my area. The street was flooded and many cars immersed in water. If the garage in my apartment had been flooded, I would have been able to buy a new car. "What a pity!"
