Reminder: Put Your Car in Park Before Picking It Up With a Crane
Just by looking at the screenshot of this video, you already knew it was going to be awful. Then you read the title: "I thought it was in park." Oof, this is going to get ugly. Right off the bat, you can see the rig is a little bit crooked and doesn't have proper weight distribution. As the crane-operated platform rises and starts to twist, it seems to slowly lean more and more off balance. There seem to be people outside of the shot of the video turning it with ropes to prepare it for transfer into a higher floor of the building, but things go terribly awry before it even had the chance.

According to the description of the video, the operator was fired shortly after the mishap. "Thankfully I got insurance and a good lawyer," it adds.
Everybody makes mistakes, but unfortunately for this person, the oops affected more than just him or her.
