Fence collapses like row of dominoes

China's state broadcaster has released surveillance video showing a road-dividing fence in the city of Jinhua falling like a giant row of dominoes.
The 1.5km-long fence on Shuanglong Bridge tumbled over in just 30 seconds.
It was the second time in ten days that it's collapsed, according to the deputy head of Jinhua traffic police, Shao Zhichang.
Shao and his colleagues lifted the fence back up section by section.
The last section hit a minivan waiting at traffic lights, but the incident did not cause any serious damage.
According to Jinhua Municipal Administration, the dividing fence is top-heavy, making it susceptible to strong winds.
The municipal administration said it plans to install a new barrier with a wind-resistant design by the end of July.

You'd swear this was deliberate. It just looks so staged. like a real dominoes display. They should have put the occasional gap in the fence so a chain reaction would stop after a while. However that wind might knock it over anyway.
