One of our tower crews went to stab a tower after digging the hole and hit a water main feeding a near by subdivision. This is AFTER the site had locates performed. Apparently the residents were very vocal about having no water for a few hours while they fixed the pipe.

What kind of "tower" is that? Kind of small.

We've hit underground power services while driving ground rods. The odds of hitting a 1 inch diameter cable are astronomical, yet we've managed to do it.

I've seen that happen on a jobsite. There were so many construction workers running for the exits, you'd have thought it was Miller time on a Friday. Of course I was 25 feet in the air on a scissors lift, so it took me longer to get out........
At least it was the foreman that hit the gas line, so no one got in trouble.

My favorite digging accident was when I worked for Wells Fargo in SF. A crew cut the containment for the fibre optics from the data center. No problem, we had a redundant set of fibres coming out the other side of the building ...

and looping around the block to run through the same containment!
