Daily Images – Demolition of large buildings, tall chimneys, smokestacks, and increasingly some smaller structures may be destroyed by building implosion using explosives. Imploding a building is very fast — the collapse itself only takes seconds — and an expert can ensure that the building falls into its own footprint, so as not to damage neighboring structures. This is essential for tall structures in dense urban areas.  Any error can be disastrous, however, and some demolitions have failed, severely damaging neighbouring structures. The greatest danger is from flying debris which, when improperly prepared for, can kill onlookers.
