To remove an aging overpass in Nanchang China, a veritable army of Hyundai excavation machines lined up and worked to rapidly demolish the old structure – removing the entire bridge in about 2 days, and reopening to traffic in 56 hours. (Thanks Hubert!)
(PG-13 Language) A construction worker in Houston, Texas was using his excavator to help gradually dismantle a parking garage, when the whole building unexpectedly fell at once. Fortunately, he backed up just enough that he managed to walk away unscathed.
(NSFW: Language) This guy has the unenviable task of taking down an old grain silo with nothing more than a hammer. Incredibly, everyone survives this demolition-gone-bad without a scratch.
Pay your last respects to this defunct 450 foot-tall nuclear cooling tower located in South Carolina as it finally meets its maker thanks to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
