A digger driver had a close call while pulling down a building in Russia. 


While demolishing an abandoned structure, the digger operator almost went crashing down with it.


Filmed on a worksite in Alushta, Russia on January 23, Dmitriy Kotov watched in horror as the digger almost flipped over while pulling down the concrete frame.


Luckily for the driver, the excavator avoided disaster after landing upright once the building had collapsed. 


Dmitriy said: “I was scared for the operator. 


“There was only minor damage.”
