Occasionally, life takes unpredictable turns we never anticipated.
A remarkable instance of this happened when an Ohio-based energy firm contracted with a professional explosive demolition business.
The agreement was for the demolition of 4 chimneys out of 5, with the remaining one to remain untouched.
Every detail of the demolition had been meticulously planned, yet something unforeseen occurred!
“Occurred on November 4, 2022 / Manchester, Ohio, USA We had contracted a demolition company to set off explosives on a controlled demolition. The contract was only to control blast 4 towers but as the 4th tower started to fall it switched directions and took out the scrub tower” pic.twitter.com/ZOGmkQPEgJ— catastrophic failure (@ohshidt) December 11, 2022
After the explosion began, one of the chimneys suddenly shifted direction and collided with the fifth chimney. This resulted in all five collapsing simultaneously.
From a staggering 1.5 kilometers away, a video clip captured the entire operation at the blast site.
