Rough wake-up as excavator smashes into apartment

Rough wake-up as excavator smashes into apartment

A young girl in Australia has had an incredibly lucky escape after an excavator tipped over and crashed into her bedroom.

It would have been a nasty wake-up for the 11-year-old, who was asleep at the time.

Incredibly, no one was injured, including the driver who witnesses report was able to walk away after the collision.

It's thought the excavator was involved in demolition works next to the apartment block, when it flipped and smashed into the building.  

The family was staying in the Gold Coast apartment on holiday.
