German Steel Mill Malfunctions, Unleashes Flood of Molten Steel

Here we have a wild glimpse of a mini-apocolypse unfolding inside the halls of the Saarstahl AG Steelworks steel mill in Völklingen, Germany. According to local newspapers hastily translated into semi-servicable english, the accident occurred due to a technical defect in the ladle slide (the "bucket" you can see overflowing with molten steel) that made it impossible to regulate the flow of steel into the ladle. This resulted in a massive overflow of the molten steel that ballooned out of control, leading to an immense flood of molten steel throughout the plant.

In the video, we see multiple works calmly moving out of the way of what would be certain and excruciating death, moving backward deeper into the planet. Funnily enough, you hear the cameraman cry out in german about halfway through the clip, followed by laughter -- apparently, that's him saying something like "That's my bike!" before focusing the camera on the charred and still-flaming skeleton of a bicycle.
