Saw it on the news website here. There have been a few this year that have landed on the pavement but I think this might be the biggest (and most expensive) so far.

Ouch.

Forgot where I was for a minute...............

Per the owner, the cable snapped. And I must say he is taking this quite well and is in very good spirits considering the events of the day.

$hit happens...but holy $hit that's some expensive $hit to happen in the middle of the street.
