Snow causes roof collapse at Minnesota hardware store

It was the fastest he had run in 10 years, according to Darrick Anderson, a shop worker from Glenwood, Minnesota.

Mr Anderson narrowly escaped serious injury when the roof of the hardware store where he works caved in due to heavy snow.

The shop owner, Garret Wagner, said he could feel the air pressure being sucked out of the room.

It's believed accumulated snow on the roof caused the incident.
