Museum visitor breaks priceless clock
COLUMBIA, Penn. - A timeless moment of heartrending agony happened at a museum in Pennsylvania when an overly touchy visitor got hands-on with a priceless clock, causing it to fall from the wall and smash into pieces.
Security camera footage was posted online by employees from the National Watch and Clock Museum in Columbia, Pennsylvania, where the incident happened.
The video shows a couple checking out the clocks before the male visitor decides to take a photo of a one-of-a-kind sculptural pieces by artist James Borden. After that, he decided to walk closer and eventually reach to touch the clock, pulling on the pendulum that makes the unique clock rock from side to side.
Calamity occurred when the timepiece fell from the wall and eventually broke into several bits. Once this happened, he does what most of us would have done and bails as if nothing happened.
There is no word from the museum yet, which has one of the most comprehensive clock collections in the U.S., concerning whether or not the man will be held responsible. He should probably visit a time machine museum next to reverse the damage that has been done.
