HORROR VIDEO: The Moment a 12-Story Building Crashes on Defenseless Backhoe Driver
A few men were videotaping a demolition in process in the Upper Kirby area of Houston, Texas, on Tuesday when something unexpected happened. The shocking video showed that the demolition went horribly wrong, sending a 12- story building crashing down right on top of a defenseless construction worker.
The dramatic footage was captured from a nearby window and showed a construction worker pulling on the building during the parking garage demolition. Suddenly, the whole building shifted forward and crashes on top of him.
The terrifying moment was posted to YouTube and showed two excavators working at the site when the structure came crashing down, according to KPRC. Then men recording the feed were in awe of the destruction and quickly realized that the man may not have survived.
Workers rushed to aid the construction worker caught in the crash, and after a few moments the man emerged from the construction vehicle unharmed.
