Wind Turbine Brakes Fail

Screenshot, skip to 0:15
Wind turbines are supposed to shutdown in high winds. Not only did the brakes fail, but the turning of the blades to have just an edge in the wind must have also failed. This is the best NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) argument I have seen. Normally it takes a few seconds for the propeller to make a complete revolution.
