Woopsie: Demolition Crew Also Destroys The Building Next To The One They're Supposed To Demolish

May 24, 2017

This is a video from Baltimore, Maryland of a city-hired demolition crew accidentally knocking over the building next to the one they're supposed to be demolishing. It looks like the chimney falling cause a chain reaction of structural fail. Now I'm not saying I saw an accident coming from a mile away, but you definitely could have seen it from the moon. QUESTION: is all it takes to be a demolition crew a heavy-duty excavator to operate and a will to destroy? Because I'll go to the bank and get a small business loan right this second. Also, I love how the excavator operator just keeps tearing away at the building after destroying the other one. It's like he knows he's gonna get fired and just really wants to wreck shit one last time. I can respect that.

Keep going for the video, the woopsie daisy starts around 0:50.

Thanks to hairless, who agrees when you're trying to demolish a building that's basically connected to another building, you should be picking at that shit like a paleontologist trying to unearth a dinosaur bone.

    If a buiulding goes down like this from those few stones tipping over, it is better that it failed like this.

    Seriously?! An excavator to pull down a TERRACED building...? So yeah, don't see anything worrying on that risk assessment.... crazy...

  • Well, if it didn't wanna get torn down too, maybe it shouldn't have decided to exist so close to the one getting torn down?

    Somebody rigged that building to go to collect the insurance.

    If it wasn't rigged then it's probably good that it failed when nobody was inside. If it's that structurally unsound it was only a matter of time before it came down.

    Let's hope that is the case, if not - then who knows how long it will take for them to get the money and work done :(

    I would assume that the demolition company has to have insurance to cover this sort of thing.
