The incident took place on March 5 when strong winds caused the decorative column to break loose from a building. The CCTV clip, posted by CGTN on Facebook, shows the pillar falling on a bus passing below the building. While the pillar broke into two pieces, the bus also sustained major damage. A camera inside the bus recorded the impact of the falling pillar. The pillar caused a deep dent as it landed on the bus.
A person was seen sitting inside the bus when the pillar crashed but fortunately, he wasn't injured.
