Officials conduct implosions at site of collapsed Hard Rock Hotel in New Orleans

  • Published on Oct 21, 2019
  • Officials set off thundering explosions Sunday to topple two cranes looming precariously over a partially collapsed hotel in New Orleans, but most of one crane appeared to be left dangling atop the ruined building while the other crashed down. The explosions set off massive clouds of dust, but officials say everything went exactly as expected.

    Why not bring in a much bigger crane, cable off the damaged roof cranes and torch it off in pieces from a basket..That one Crane is A LOT less stable now after this β€œ professional demolition β€œ

    Ok, I’m confused...were the towers to be brought down to ground level then disassembled or perched in an unsafe manner against the crumbling building..They did hire a professional demolition company...right.?

    How is it that a house built out of wood in the same time looks new but this building made of metal and brick is collapsing?

    The demolition was not as planned apparently. And the second crain is in a worse position than before. But the commenter is reading from a script.

    I live in New Orleans. The building has been sitting there unsafe since the collapse. Ignorance is a disease here, finding decent smart people is not always easy.

    It was built by the Chinese obviously. America builds everything perfect. If anything breaks just say a racist statement like it was made by the Chinese.

    I can tell you what it was the fact we dont do any of the smelting of metals in the US anymore guess where all the steal we use for building comes from CHINA. Check out some of the vlogs people that live there make that are not from china there was a smelting plant owner that was killed by the government for putting stuff in to the steal that makes it weaker to save some money they have 2 year old condos there that are just collapsing.
