Austin police have released video footage of a car falling seven stories from a parking garage, and it’s just as wild and scary as you’d expect. The car broke through a barrier and dropped into an alley, nearly smashing another car when it hit the ground.

That’s the second time in the last year this has happened at the Littlefield Parking Garage. Last September, a car broke through a barrier on the top floor, leaving him dangling nine stories up.

The garage recently issued a statement that, after the first incident, they hired a structural engineer to improve the barriers, and the City of Austin had approved the repairs.
