A family outside Minneapolis just wanted a swimming pool, instead they got a huge hole in their house. A crane was being used to install the fiberglass pool in the homeowners' backyard when the whole thing tipped over in an instant.

An electrician happened to be filming at the time. The garage roof was destroyed and the top of the chimney was sliced. The crane company says a computer error is to blame for the mishap. The pool suffered only a crack.

The crane company is paying for the damages. The installation should be completed soon.
