Watch chilling moment as building falls on excavator operator

The building debris flew right over the excavator, almost burying the operator in the process.

In a video shared by privately-owned Citizen Tv, the heavy debris from the building flew right over the excavator, almost burying the operator in the process.

He, however, emerged from the half rubble moments later covered in dust but uninjured, reports the Daily Nation newspaper.

The demolition is part of an exercise by national environment watchdog, Nema, to reclaim occupied wetlands in Nairobi.

The government has earmarked 4,000 buildings for demolition because they sit on riparian land, public utility plots and road reserves.
