Be ye warned.
If falling elevators, rogue wood chippers, detached fire hoses and pigeons with tuberculosis weren’t enough weird ways to die for you, here’s a new one.
A rogue wrecking ball bouncing down your street in a life-size pinball game:
Three people were injured and 12 cars damaged this morning when a 1,500-pound wrecking ball snapped loose from a crane’s cable on the campus of Allegheny College and rolled through downtown Meadville, Crawford County.
The wrecking ball traveled 3,600 feet, about 7/10s of a mile.
Officer Joseph said his investigation into the incident was complete except for “a whole lot of paper work.”
I bet a lot of that paperwork is just the words, “Holy shit!” written over and over and over again.
Police said crane operator Robby L. Boring, 28, of Meadville, was injured when he tried to stop the wrecking ball by throwing bricks in front of it.
Heh. Throwing bricks in front of a wrecking ball? Why not try to stop a bullet with some sauerkraut? Same effectiveness.
