Video has gone viral on Chinese social media of the terrifying moment when a giant billboard came toppling down upon a group of unsuspecting vehicles in downtown Dongguan.
The incident took place at around 3 p.m. today amid heavy winds.
No human casualties have been reported, but it appears that car-kind did not fare quite as well.
Check out more photos of the carnage below:
And video from the scene:
According to a preliminary investigation, the billboard toppled over because the screws holding its foundation in place had become weak with rust and were overpowered by the wind… which is a comforting thought.
