DOH! Geniuses Implode Ohio Power Plant Tower, But It Falls The Wrong Way Sending People Running For Their Lives & Knocking Down Power Lines

   < CURRENT RATING + RATE IT YOURSELF

The former Ohio Edison Mad River Power Plant’s 275-foot tower in Springfield came down on Wed., Nov. 10, but the blast knocked it the wrong direction. The tower was supposed to fall to the northeast, but ended up falling to the south — knocking down several nearby powerlines.

No one was injured from the tower falling the wrong way, but power was knocked out for more than 8000 customers when the smoke stack crushed several pieces of power equipment

Children were present because the company is a family-run outfit that travels the country doing this work.
The company was featured in a six-part TLC Network series called The Imploders
