workers drop a 100-year-old statue


This is the moment workers tried to move a 100-year-old statue – and dropped it!

Footage of the Belgian crew’s disastrous attempt to move the monument appeared on YouTube yesterday.

The film shows the workers try to lift the stone statue from it’s plinth using a hoist

But it slips through the attached guide ropes and crashes to the ground, breaking into pieces in the process.

Love the youtube description: “Don’t worry, idiotic Belgian movers, I’m sure that statue didn’t really need its head anyway.” 😛
