This is horrifying. Two cranes were trying to restore a bridge when they both collapsed into the nearby neighborhood. The cranes were holding a big chunk of the bridge when they fell, so that smashed into the ground as well. Homes and shops along the river were destroyed and 20 people were hurt. Thankfully, no one died.

The collapse happened in Alphen aan den Rijn in The Netherlands. You can read more about it here.
