Video: Pool-Moving Crane Crushes House

If you’ve ever witnessed a neighbor installing a fiberglass pool with a humongous crane that precariously lifts the structure over the house, you’ve probably wondered whether the procedure could end in disaster. Your answer, according to an incident that occurred in Minnesota, is a resounding “yes.”

KARE 11 Minneapolis-St. Paul reports a pool-moving crane crashed into a house and caused the truck to flip into the air. The mishap bludgeoned the garage roof and sliced the chimney, leaving the tub to tumble onto a fence in the backyard.

Here’s a video of the disaster recorded live at the scene (warning: NSFW language erupts when the crane plunges into the home):
