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 Ã¢â‚¬â€ knocking down several nearby powerlines.
No one was injured from the tower falling the wrong way, but power was knocked out for more thanÃ‚Â 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-partÃ‚Â TLC Network series calledÃ‚Â The Imploders
