Pillar Of Strength

This is fairly old news but I came across it tonight and had a good laugh so I thought that I would share it here. It amazes me how stupid people can be sometimes!

For several days Johannesburg office workers watched a demolition worker slowly chip away at a pillar supporting the concrete slab above him. One observer said, “I wondered how they would drop that section.” The walls were gone, and only the supporting pillars remained.

Dozens of observers watched the slow and senseless demolition proceed. Finally the only possible outcome concluded this epic battle. The besieged support collapsed, crushing man and machine beneath a pile of rubble. Ishmael Makone, 52, was killed instantly inside the cab of his mini-excavator.

“I cannot believe they did not foresee this,” said a shocked witness who did not forsee this. Observers said they had been concerned about the workers’ safety for several days. “There was no common sense.”
