An amusing video has emerged of a man failing to load a mini excavator onto a truck in Vancouver, Canada.
The footage, shot from a nearby building on Monday, shows the man reversing the excavator on ramps before one gives way and the vehicle and driver fall off.
"He was informed that the ramps he was using to load the machine were far to flimsy and unstable to hold the weight and was given the option to have the machine delivered," the filmer wrote online.
"The customer chose to ignore this recommendation and attempted to load the machine himself.
"As he backed the machine up the ramps and the motion of the rubber track pulled the ramp away from the bed of the truck and he was basically stuck without being able to move forward or backwards as the ramps would now slide depending on which direction he moved".
