Accidents happen when nobody expects a crane to be the size of a crane that crashes into their house.

That was the reality for TikTok user datzmylife, who shared photos and videos of the recent incident at her Richmond Hill home.


I have now posted this as a video!

Original sound – it’s my life

She says she was upstairs in her parents’ room filming a video of a new pool being lowered into her yard when the crane lowering the pool suddenly fell just a few rooms away from her.

“I had to get out of there, otherwise I would be crushed by the crane,” she said in a TikTok post. “I ran for my life.”

Fortunately, no injuries were reported, although she and her family had to move temporarily.

Another crane was called in to lift the crane that had fallen into the house and caused great damage on the second floor.


That was a turn

In their latest update, released today, datzmylife says they have recovered some personal items from the house and that the house will be covered with a tarp when it rains.
