Hockey Rink Roof Collapse Video: Watch Stunning Footage from Slovakian Incident
Remember the footage from inside the Metrodome when the roof collapsed in December of 2010?
It has nothing on the footage from Slovakia that is currently taking YouTube by storm. If you haven't seen it yet, direct your eyes to the above video.
The video is a clip from a brand-new ice hockey rink Námestovom, where young hockey players were training with former NHL player Richard Zednik. Everything is calm at the beginning of the video, but you can hear some strange noises at the beginning of the clip, ones that sound like the building is under some kind of external pressure.
And then the video jumps to a clip of the roof slowly collapsing while everyone inside the rink is trying to flee to safety.
According to several reports (via Yahoo! Sports), the good news is that nobody was hurt. That's pretty amazing once you notice that the people inside the building literally stood by and watched the roof collapse right in front of them.
The Yahoo! Sports report claims the cause of the collapse is being investigated. The YouTube description says the roof collapsed under the weight of the snow, which is self-evident.
I don't want to make light of the situation, but this has got to be some of the most amazing footage in the history of sports. This is not the first roof collapse we've seen caught on film, but to my knowledge this is the first collapse to be caught on film by somebody who was actually there as it was happening.
That's just plain remarkable.
