Excavator and Operator Buried Under Building

Spotted this horrific video over at our friends on Demolition News today, one has to ask why on earth they are not using a high reach demolition specification excavator to perform the task.

This is a classic example of how not to do a job; I can't understand why the operator decided it would be a good idea to jump out of the cab! Surely it would have been a much better idea to stay in the cab and track away at high speed as the building starts to fall. 

 

 

Amazingly it seems that the operator was a very lucky man indeed and survived the incident, the excavator on the other hand was a right off!
