    Our second floor had precast slabs put down (7 meters wide) and forms just around the stairs. Rebar all around, of course. Then they poured the whole thing...and it stayed!

    If I remember right, it's 20cm thick.

    That looks like my concrete skills. Mine has never collapsed though.

    Even the rebar in the top left corner is applauding their skills.

    Probably, wouldn't have collapsed, if the guy in the plaid shirt hadn't stepped in the wrong spot.

    Looks like the guy running the vibrator caused the column form to fail, which led to this domino failure of all the support forms.

    The guy in the plaid shirt did it?

    If the setup was that dependent on the guy in plaid shirt not stepping where he did, an engineer missed a decimal point somewhere!
