Mistakes and accidents are unavoidable. They're part of our lives. But don't worry, this isn't an insurance ad. It's a piece on the subreddit That Looked Expensive.’

It's an online community, where people share photos, gifs, and videos of mistakes, accidents, catastrophes, and disasters that cost a small fortune.

We're talking a supercar storage catching fire, children knocking over a $70K sculpture, and many more hilarious, er, I mean, costly mishaps. Continue scrolling to check them out and take a look at Bored Panda's earlier article on the subreddit after you're done, too!

That was my old company. This was in the Mandalay Bay Hotel right after an event ended. It was a careless rigger who did not test the motors that lowered and raised this whole rig. When he lowered it, one set of the motors was off and the whole thing started lowering on an angle and put extreme pressure on the two motors/rigging on the side. Soon the entire weight on the thing was on 15% of the support and it snapped. Luckily, no one but him was in the room at the time, and he survived. $750K in damage. He was a union guy, so all he probably got was sent home.
