Thanks to some high winds and a shoddy construction job, a giant chunk of scaffolding came crashing down from a building this week in Portland, Oregon.

Onlookers watched and filmed in fascination as the debris teetered back and forth before eventually falling to the street.

No one was injured in the accident, but one car apparently took a lot of damage.
