Officials conduct implosions at site of collapsed Hard Rock Hotel in New Orleans

Officials set off thundering explosions Sunday to topple two cranes looming precariously over a partially collapsed hotel in New Orleans, but most of one crane appeared to be left dangling atop the ruined building while the other crashed down. The explosions set off massive clouds of dust, but officials say everything went exactly as expected.

  • A Crew of Union Structural Ironworkers could've EASILY taken both those cranes down OVERNIGHT in the damn DARK and without completely destroying them! FACT

  • Why not bring in a much bigger crane, cable off the damaged roof cranes and torch it off in pieces from a basket..That one Crane is A LOT less stable now after this “ professional demolition “

  • Ok, I’m confused...were the towers to be brought down to ground level then disassembled or perched in an unsafe manner against the crumbling building..They did hire a professional demolition company...right.?

  • It was built by the Chinese obviously. America builds everything perfect. If anything breaks just say a racist statement like it was made by the Chinese.

  • I can tell you what it was the fact we dont do any of the smelting of metals in the US anymore guess where all the steal we use for building comes from CHINA. Check out some of the vlogs people that live there make that are not from china there was a smelting plant owner that was killed by the government for putting stuff in to the steal that makes it weaker to save some money they have 2 year old condos there that are just collapsing.

I'm not buying that for a second. Know why? That's the script EVERY news outlet is saying "as planned". That's how you know they're lying.
