Video – File under “HOLY CRAP”..

Video captures latest Chinese near miss.

A dramatic video has emerged from China of an excavator operator narrowly missing being crushed during a building demolition.

In the footage, captured in Chongqing, China, the operator can be seen using a hydraulic hammer to break down the lower half of a five-storey building.

Rather than collapsing forward, however, the building collapses sideways, almost burying the vehicle. According to local news reports, no one was injured in the demolition.
