Demolition crew in Beijing improvise to get their job done.

I took this from my living room window.

This demolition project is 200m away from the tallest building in Beijing in the heart of the CBD. As you will see the developer who has bought the land, Soho China, is knocking down the existing building while trying to save as much money as possible and with little regard to the safety of the workers. They need to get the job down as quick as they can with very few men and machines. The only way is to risk their lives ad as shown in this video.
