Video: Raw footage of terrifying moment huge crane crashes into a block of flats

THIS video shows the moment a massive construction crane collapsed through a block of flats in Kirov, Russia.

The crane smashes through several floors of the nine-storey building, which is home to around 250 people, including 37 children.

Despite the huge damage, no fatalities or serious injuries were reported.

It’s thought that high winds may have caused the incident, with one resident saying: "The wind was quite strong and right in front of my eyes the crane started rolling down the rail towards the house”.
