Angelmassb: give them some credit, these guys had a tunnle to work in, whereas the 9/11 guys had easily accessable elevator shafts and other access ports.

Crakr: The wires were obviously live, as evidenced by the arcing and explosion at 0:35. The stack took out two 12,500 volt lines and several backup generators, over 4000 people were without power for several hours. Dude, you make Forrest Gump look like a genius.

Incidentally, this is (was) the last of the Ohio Edison Mad River power plant. The main plant was demolished with a wrecking ball, but they decided to use explosives on the smokestack (for safety reasons, lol).

To me, the best part of the whole video is when the youngest girl is the first one smart enough to see the danger and start running!

Something tells me those wires weren't live, but still scary.

Did anyone else have to mute it because of that insufferable kid screaming out over everyone else during the countdown?
