An attempt to load a drill onto the back of a tractor trailer was posted online after the attempt went horribly wrong.

It happened in the far eastern region of Russia at a remote exploration drilling camp.

“Apparently they had done it many times before without a problem,” wrote the man who recorded the incident.

In the clip, the drill revs its engine and begins to climb the ramp onto the trailer. As it makes the climb, the entire drill topples over sideways, trapping the driver inside.

“No-one was hurt and the drill [was] repaired in three days,” said the witness.

“This time it didn’t work out so well, as often happens in the remote Russian work camps.”
