Yikes!

This Verizon Wireless guyed wire cell tower was struck by lightning and collapsed into itself twice. They are designed to fall into themselves and fold up, instead of tipping over. Kudos to the engineers who designed the structure, and no one was injured according to sources at the scene.

Good example

Despite the damage to the cell tower this is a great example of how safety in design is a factor and there are break points engineered into the structure to keep it from toppling over.
