    I don't see where this was done but it had to be a country with weak or missing safety regulations and insurance industry.

    It's China. But I know from first hand experience there are tough safety laws in China. Just like over here, people try to get away with all kinds of sketchy things.

    Before getting in the excavator, the operator was rumored to have said, "Here! Hold my beer!"
