This is serious and I realize somebody could have gotten hurt or even killed but everytime I see the two little girls take off running and hear them scream I just have to laugh.

I guess next time get a demolition crew of more than five (one of which appears to be a small child)?

That's crazy. What are the chances of that crew getting work again?

I wonder if they put this out for bids, if so I'm sure there was a bid that was 50% of everybody else; sometimes cheapest is not always the best.

From the story I saw they blamed it on an undetected crack. More like the demo team was on undetected crack.

Re: Blasted tower falls the wrong way in Ohio.

it also probably isn't a good idea to stand near power lines during a demolition...

I thought that it was funny that the only person who realized that they should run away was the little girl. Everyone else juat stood around and gawked.

...and they want us to believe that the crumbling of the WTC buildings were not controlled demolition.
