Watch: Silo Demolition Goes Awry in Denmark

The planned demolition of a silo in Denmark took a literal turn for the worse when it toppled the wrong way and smashed into a pair of nearby buildings.

The bizarre scene unfolded in the town of Vordingborg, where a crowd had gathered to see the 175-foot-tall tower brought down by explosives.

However, their delight at the sight quickly faded when they realized that the falling silo was going in the wrong direction and headed right for a library and music school located next to the tower.

Incredible footage of the mishap shows the silo slowly tipping over in an almost agonizing fashion, clipping the buildings and blasting them with debris.

Thankfully, the area around the silo had been cleared well ahead of time and, therefore, no one was injured due to the incident.
