Crane collapses onto 9-story apartment in Russia


Click to Watch it Happen

A construction crane fell onto a 9-story apartment block, home to 250 residents, in the Russian town of Kirov, crushing the balconies on one side of the building from top to bottom, like something out of a Hollywood blockbuster.

The incident happened during heavy gusts of wind as construction near the building was underway. “When the wind blew, I saw the crane running on rails about 100 meters in the direction of the house. As soon as it bumped into the stop, it fell down onto the 9-story house,” a witness said.

Seven cars parked in front of the apartment building were crushed under the boom heap of the collapsed crane. No one was injured in the incident.
