Bad demolition - level 3
A demolition team in Australia have demonstrated how not to implode a building. One hundred kilograms of explosives made a big bang but as the 4,000-ton silo in Redbank began to collapse, it got stuck.
Red-faced workers brought in two heavy excavators to try and bring it down. Aussie’s answer Italy's Leaning Tower of Pisa stayed leaning to one side for 40 minutes until… the half century-old silo turned to rubble.
Interesting words: demonstrate (show), implode (explode inwards), silo (tall building for storing corn), excavators (large machine for digging), rubble (parts of destroyed building).
