Remember the ads: "It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature!"?  Wonder who's gonna have to pay for that mistake?

Given the number of people standing around watching, plus that it was filmed, I suspect it was done intentionally - perhaps for a French version of "Mythbusters" TV show, who did something similar a few years ago....

Thanks stix, enjoyed your link! 

I think you're right, there were too many people nearby for it to be random event in the link I posted.  Don't understand what they're saying but may have clarified the story.

I remeber one of the videos I watched, it was not staged.

Amazing just how quick it happens!

IDRick, I had sent you a PM about RCR, don't know if you've seen it yet.
