Judging by the panicked screams in this video, the folks demolishing a 275-foot smoke stack in Springfield, Ohio didn't expect it to snap power lines, destroy power equipment, or terrify children when it collapsed into the wrong direction.

There were no injuries resulting from this incident, but 8,000 people did lose their electricity due to the power equipment being crushed.
