Leaning Tower’s day or wreckoning…

Wrecking ball sets out to complete what explosives could not.

Just over a week after explosives failed to demolish part of a tower block in Dallas, the demolition contractor has called upon reinforcements in the shape of a trusty crawler crane and wrecking ball.

For the past seven days, Texans have marvelled as the “Leaning Tower of Dallas” stood somewhat miraculously on an angle without a hint of falling. People flocked to the unlikely attraction, snapping their selfies and preparing to say their goodbyes, quickly turning a partially failed demolition into an Internet sensation.
