Timber! Lucky escape for Russian pedestrians as strong winds topple trees and pylons
Pedestrians had a lucky escape in the Russian city of Chusovoy on Monday (September 27) when strong winds toppled a tree and several pylons just metres from where they were walking.
Security camera footage showed a tree and an electricity pylon crash down onto the pavement between an elderly couple and a child.
In a separate incident, another pylon fell close to a petrol station and several customers.
No-one was hurt in the incidents.
