A 12-story hotel in China recently fell over – in three seconds. How?

The slightly anti-China/ communist video above explains that, via a combination of poor choice of location, heavy rains, and weak construction, what took this hotel down was physics. Lucky there weren’t other similarly constructed buildings close by, otherwise there might have been a domino effect.

*Correction: The building was an apartment building, not a hotel. Sorry!
