Crane Crashes Into House, Bystanders Left In Shock (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

This is not how things were meant to happen.

The video below, posted by an electrical company that was hired to wire the hot tub once it was laid in place, shows just what can go wrong with do-it-yourself home improvements. The homeowner involved apparently had bought the hot tub, dug the hole and rented the crane operator himself.

While the crane operator was shaken, its unclear who or what was at fault. The original YouTube post says the crane was supposed to have a "load chart" that would prevent such disasters.

Luckily, no people were injured in the incident. The house wasn't so lucky.
