When Dubai's Mega-Buildings Attack

Illustration for article titled When Dubais Mega-Buildings Attack

Usually when you hear about buildings in Dubai, it's a news report about how the country is building the biggest or tallest or most freakishly-shaped skyscraper. But of course that means their industrial accidents are also the most spectacular too.

Nobody was hurt when this crane collapsed yesterday on a metro station, but it did cause a hellacious traffic jam. Photos via STR/AFP/Getty Images.

I'm not saying that I don't want to see either of those posts on here, I just wish people would be consistent. Ha.
