Every person faces setbacks from time to time in life. Most often with minor ones like spilled coffee on one’s pants, less often with more serious ones like “I was late for the train. All of them, of course, spoil the mood and break plans, but not globally, and do not pose a threat to the life of the person to whom it happened. But sometimes someone gets a mega-failure, which can be called a real disaster – extremely costly and life-threatening. It’s a good thing when such accidents happen without casualties! Today’s photo story will tell you about them.
