Bad demolition - level 2

Bad demolition - level 2

17-05-2013 06:00

An Australian demolition team wanted to destroy an old building. They had a hundred kilograms of explosives to destroy the 4,000-ton silo.

It made a big bang and the silo began to fall down but then it stopped. It got stuck. The embarrassed workers had to use big machines to finish bringing it down. After 40 minutes the building finally fell.

Interesting words: demolition (destroying completely), silo (tall building for storing food).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
