Dramatic video shows Russia stadium collapse with worker on roof



Air drone footage captured the moment when the stadium collapsed in St Petersburg, Russia. A demolition worker has been killed when a sports complex roof collapsed too soon.

Disturbing footage shows the man with a blow torch cutting through metal supports at the SKK Peterburgskiy when the huge structure disintegrates.

Nearby, there was also a cage suspended from a crane. The body of a 29-year-old man was found later in the rubble.

The man was one of 4 employees cutting metal cables to dismantle the roof of the sports and concert complex.

People need to be safe when working at heights. You could be tied to the building. However, think about what are the chances that the structure will collapse. The chances of the structure collapsing are much higher if it is being demolished, disassembled, parts taken apart, unscrewed, unbolted, parts stripped, dismantled and so on.
