Denmark – Building Demolition Goes Horribly Wrong (Video)

One of the most famous lines from William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet goes ‘Something is rotten in the state of Denmark’, which in the current day and age is often used to describe either corruption or a situation where something in wrong and it wasn’t expected.

Given that the situation we’ll describe wasn’t meant to go wrong and the country where it took place is indeed Denmark, we here at hope you will allow us this lovely pun.

Yes, in the town of Vordingborg a lot of the locals had turned up to see the planned demolition of a large 173-foot high silo which was scheduled to go down at 4.45pm local time. Many gathered along the shoreline or boarded boats to see and film the destruction.

As you can see from the many videos available, the engineers had cut out parts of one side to make sure the building would fall in that direction.

In the beginning it all goes well and the silo tends to lean over to the right when it is falling, but then in the midst of its destruction it starts to fall to the other side, destroying a large part of a nearby building in its fall (a structure used as a library and cultural center for the town).

Luckily no one was harmed but many in Denmark are left to wonder how this could happen.

Project Manager Mr Kenneth Wegge: “I simply do not know how it may have gone so bad,”

“I will put my head on the block. We have prepared half a year for this.”
