All of the expplosive went off at the same time. That's clearly wrong. You set the pieces you want to fold off first so that they can begin coming down and then set off the rest after a few seconds.

Any engineers on board that can highlight this?

Ok, how could they not see that the smaller crane's arm would collapse onto what appears to be an elevator shaft?

I have no idea but clearly they thought it would do what big one did.

But it's over that metal framing. I mean seriously? Did they not see that??? And that's about 15 tons just slamming into that framing. That's no longer structurally safe.

I mean wow

I just loled as I've seen that waaay to often

But none of my clients were on this job... Whew
Indeed.

In my previous life, I've reviewed more contracts than I would have preferred for suppliers in the same general line as the demolition companies (e.g. wild well control, marine salvage, environmental remediators) so I know they're airtight covered on any liability from this screwed up mess.

And that appears to be the only thing holding that crane up, they can't just leave it there for days while they figure out what to do next.

Secure it to the bldg best you can. But if we get bad weather, high winds... Could be an issue and now you have no idea where it will tumble

I love the crane acting like a lawn dart!

When you think a cluster fudge can get no worse.

I just hope they get this cleaned up before Mardi gras.
