Skyline implosion doesn't go as planned

The demolition of high-rise apartments in Scotland did not go as planned.

The Glasgow Housing Association was trying to bring down an iconic grouping of buildings that have been part of the city’s skyline since the 1960s.

When they were built, they were considered to be the answer to the city’s housing problem. But over the years they became rundown and vandalized.

As smoke from the controlled explosion cleared, it became immediately clear that two of the buildings would survive half-intact.

Now demolition crews have a lot of unplanned work.
