Video of Car Falling Seven Stories Out of a Parking Garage

Police have released video showing the moment a BMW 4 Series fell seven stories after driving off the edge of an Austin, Texas parking garage—the second such incident to happen in less than a year, which is terrifying.

The video, via the Statesman, shows the BMW 4 Series come crashing down on top of a reversing SUV, followed by witnesses rushing to rescue the woman trapped in the car.

THIS HAPPENS MORE THAN YOU THINK

747 Crashes at Bagram Airport

[youtube_sc url=”http://youtu.be/uIjO0sKBDDw”]

Bagram, Afghanistan 29 April, 2013-A National Air Cargo Boeing 747-400 freighter on behalf of US Mobility Command, registration N949CA performing cargo flight N8-102 from Bagram (Afghanistan) to Dubai Al Maktoum (United Arab Emirates) with 7 crew and cargo consisting of 5 military vehicles, has crashed shortly after takeoff from Bagram Air Base’s runway 03 at 15:30L (11:00Z) and erupted into flames near the end of the runway within the perimeter of the Air Base. All 7 crew are reported perished in the crash.

The investigation into this mishap is still in the early stages.  The video does not reveal external causal effects from say a missile strike.  It appears to be a simple aerodynamic stall from which the crew did not have the altitude to recover from.

Speculation points to maybe a catastrophic shift of cargo as the aircraft pitched up for take off.

Updates of the investigation will be posted here and in our Gallery.
