Quick lesson in how not to move industrial equipment

(CBS News) This is one of those videos where you can just see the disaster coming from a mile away. Where you wonder at what point someone thought this would be a good idea. Where you start to actually talk to your screen and possibly scream, "What are you thinking? Stop! Don't do it!"
