Still standing

No one was more surprised than the demolition team that the Timken steel mill towers didn't fall after they detonated explosives at their base.

As you can see from this, in the end they pushed them over but everyone was hoping for something a bit more dramatic.

When they fired the charges, there was a loud bang, a slight shockwave then the towers simply wobbled, refusing to fall and leaving the demolition guys scratching their heads.

It still made for an entertaining sunday morning.
