This is the moment a man chopping down a tree makes a monumental mistake and causes the trunk to fall through the roof of a nearby house.
The hapless lumberjack can be heard yelling: ‘Oh, God dammit,’ before launching to a string of expletives at the top of his lungs as the massive pine crashes down on a suburban street in Houston, Texas.
A neighbour caught the disaster on video after becoming concerned that all was not going to end well.
An amateur lumberjack attempted to chop down a tree in Houston, Texas
Unfortunately for the man, the tree fell towards a nearby house and crushed its roof
Though due to his ineptitude, the tree could have fallen and crushed him instead
Homeowner Matt Bieniek, who was at work at the time, said: ‘She saw what was happening, and wanted to be ready.’
Unfortunately for the man, he appeared quite unaware of the works of Isaac Newton, who used a period of self isolation during the Black Death to describe the theory of gravity.
The worker had hoped the tree would fall away from the house, though he made a critical mistake when cutting through the trunk.
Instead of removing a wedge shape to encourage the tree to fall in a certain direction, he cut straight through in the hope gravity and a small rope would control the massive trunk.
The video shows the man attempting to pull the tree, which weighed several tonnes, away from the house.
A neighbour said they started filming the felling as they knew what was going to happen
