Viral: Silo refuses to fall during demolition


YouTube: ITN

Usually when buildings are demolished, they fall -- not so much in today's viral video.

A demolition crew was perplexed in Australia after the silo they just blew up fell for about 5 seconds and refused to fall any farther.

ITN reports that the old silo actually hung at a 45 degree angle for about 15 minutes before crews using excavators gave it a final, fatal push.

I guess the moral of the story is: If you're a building that doesn't want to be demolished, or the crew trying to demolish it.  don't ever give up.
