2004: In a suburb of Moscow, Russia, the glass roof of the Transvaal water park collapses, killing more than 25 people and wounding more than 100 others. Engineer Nodar Kancheli, who had designed the structure, first claimed that terrorists likely attacked the attraction, but the cause turned out to be a faulty design.
