Stuff blowing up. Always exciting, right? You know, a dilapidated building that needs demolishing, that kind of thing. All fun, except when the tower you're blowing up... falls in the wrong direction.
You know, a landing-on-live-power-lines-and-damaging-an-electrical-outhouse kind of direction. Cutting off power to 4000 homes. And did we mention they had kids nearby watching the event? Well, that too.
As you'll see from the footage below, the 83 foot 'Mad River Power Plant tower' in Springfield, Ohio topples into live pylons, sparks jolting out as the crowd scream and run for their lives.
"It just started leaning the other way and I thought, 'Holy cow' - It was terrifying for a little bit," fireman John Roeder said. But why did it happen? It seems there was an undetected crack in the side of the tower, which forced it the wrong way. As for the town's blackout, that knocked out traffic lights and even caused a road accident.
Still, with that crack in it in the first place, it's probably a good idea that the got rid of the blasted thing. Check out the shocking clip below...

ന്യൂഡല്ഹി: അവിശ്വസനീയം. ഇത് ഇന്ത്യ തന്നെയോ? നൂറുവട്ടം കണ്ണു തിരുമി മാത്രം വിശ്വസിക്കാവുന്ന നിമിഷമിതാ കണ്മുന്നില്. ഇന്ത്യയ്ക്ക് കോമണ്വെല്ത്ത് ഗെയിംസിന്റെ ട്രാക്കില് ഒരു സ്വര്ണം. വനിതകളുടെ 400 മീറ്റര് റിലേയിലാണ് ചരിത്രം രചിച്ച അവിസ്മരണീയമായ ഈ നേട്ടം. 3:27.77 സെക്കന്ഡിലാണ് സിനി ജോസ്, അശ്വിനി അകുഞ്ജി, മഞ്ജീത് കൗര്, മന്ദീപ് കൗര് എന്നിവരടങ്ങുന്ന ഇന്ത്യന് ടീമിന്റെ ഗോള്ഡണ് ഫിനിഷ്. 1958ലെ സ്പ്രിന്റ് ഇതിഹാസം മില്ഖാസിങ്ങിനുശേഷം ഇതാദ്യമായാണ് കോമണ്വെല്ത്ത് ഗെയിംസിന്റെ ഓട്ടത്തില് സ്വര്ണം നേടുന്നത്.
