    Unreal.

    I would prob put most of the blame though on the crane operator. The crane operator is in charge of the lift.

    I found that watching this video was hard with all the female ads shaking their ads!
    Besides that at the end of the video you saw some guy without a hard hat (as if it would have mattered) go underneath to the right. Right before the unit fell. That would have been a fatal mistake.

    Damn, I'll bet that jackass under the unit at 14sec is the luckiest sob in the world.

    Should have used a spreader bar. The angle of those straps was horrible.


    The guy that walk buy right before it fell =

    Don't be too disappointed. You'll get an even better deal on it now.

    Don't those things have a drain?

    I found I had the same problem. Had to replay it a few times....

    I am wondering why they didn't drain the unit first? Looks like a lot of water gushed out when it hit he ground... Not sure how much water was in the thing, but waters heavy...

    Wonder if the crane operator knew it was full of water?
