    Tearing down walls isn`t a strong suit for Russians. Just ask Ronald.

    I don`r really understand how pulling down a chunk of wall caused a virtual jet of debris toward the camera holder. Obviously it did, but how?

    Wow. Talk about your number being up. I hope this becomes mandatory viewing for anyone taking civil engineering exams.

    @ Carmium: I`ve watched this about a dozen times because I was asking myself the same question. Here`s my theory: When the wall of the building hit the ground, some of the energy caused the mortar to disintegrate, freeing some of the bricks. Some portions of the wall, however, remained intact. One of those intact portions of the wall twisted toward the videographer and became, in effect, a large lever that was wrenched with the tremendous energy of the falling mass. That lever hurled the freed bricks atop it in the unlucky man`s direction. Essentially, what was created was a masonry trebuchet.

    It really makes you understand the need for CAUTION tape 200` from a demolition site. It seems wildly excessive--until you see something like this.

    More information about him and his cause of death. Left behind a wife and a 3-year-old daughter. He was only 29, just watching them tear down this wall on a lunch break at work. Sad.

    That was so phuquing cool! I love seeing people die from their own stupidity and ignorance.

    Too bad it was POV. I would love to see his dumb ass get plowed over by a ton of falling bricks.

    The level of stupidity displayed by the average human being never ceases to amaze me and I am always overjoyed to see the average IQ of the planet rise ever so slightly.

    Too bad all ignorance cannot be dealt with so immediately and effectively.
    If that were the case, the rest of the morons on that work site would have perished as well.

    He probably thought the same when recording the wall being taken down like that...try not to hurt yourself in your endeavour buddy

    @autricia: thank you from bringing some humanity into this discussion. Celebrating death, reveling in death, *any* death, is despicable IMHO. Finding pleasure in the death of an innocent person who died purely by chance? There are no words for that kind of sick. :-(

    You have to be completely dead inside or twisted in a bad way, to want to revel in the death of a stranger.

    It is too bad that IAB is condoning the posting "death porn".

    @ TruTenrMan: Agreed. If I were recording the demolition on my iPhone, I probably would`ve stood about where he did, confident I was far enough back. This was really a freak accident, and no one`s immune from falling victim to such a thing.

    @gymcoach29 and @Kaagan: Yes because the event is vividly captured, not because you see blood, and I wanted people who didn`t want to see it, to know before watching the video
