Ohio Edison tower demo fails, falls wrong way

How to put a definitive point on "When exactly did you know your day was going to hell in a handbasket"?? :p

I sure hope they air this episode on TLC on that Imploders show. I want to see the look on everyone's faces. Epic fail!!!

At what point do think they guys who set that up thought, "oh, s&*t...."

Damn that sucks! :( Definitely not going to be able to use that job as a reference for future work. From the video it looks like the folks just barely got clear of the overhead lines before they came down :eek:

A few years ago I had a crane tip over and land on the building. The bosses blew up the photos to almost life size and displayed them as a mural in our companies main office lobby :o

I drove past that tower for 37.5 years on my way to work.
Glad to see it on the ground.

That is fail of the week material right there.

"...of the week."

That's funny!

Now THAT caused a bit of unexpected paperwork, ya think?
