Excavator destroys bridge with one nudge, creates huge wave in domino effect

bridge demo one nudge

In this video from China, we see one of the most beautiful bridge demolitions ever. We only get to see the final nudge that broke the bridge’s back, but we’d have to imagine some very careful weakening of the structure had to have preceded it. Nonetheless, the domino effect and the wave produced by the bridge’s fall is nothing short of extraordinary.

Even the operator who took down half a building with one nudge would be a little jealous of this one. You can watch the video below.
