By : Sam Ridgway |



A video just uploaded to YouTube shows the horrific moment a massive crane dropped onto some houses in the Netherlands.

The incident, recorded by a very distressed woman (seriously, turn the volume down), happened in Alphens – a town in the western part of the Netherlands.

Initial reports by Dutch media say that 20 people were injured in the accident. The cranes are believed to have been transporting material for a bridge when they collapsed.

Warning: The following videos could be distressing to some.

We sincerely hope those injured in the incident can make a full recovery, and our thoughts are with those involved.
