Dubai Construction Nightmare

This tower being built in Dubai's Marina was supposed to look like this: 80 stories high, with a 90 degree twist. It would sit right on the edge of the Arabian sea. A website was developed for it and construction began. They dug the area for the foundation and built a wall to keep the sea out.

And then one day the workers heard a loud crack and felt movement. Four minutes later (see below) the entire site was under water. Project delayed for up to one year. uggghh.
