First Rule of Demolition

Crowne Plaza hotels are generally not that old. However, as needs must, even the mid-scale 14-story hotels get blowed up when it’s time for progress. Such was the case in Houston, on Main near Holcombe. 1,200 pounds of explosives and a push of the button and the building was a pile of rubble. But the first rule of demolition is to make sure that the site is clear before you hit the boom button. Police searched the site of thr hotel implosion after home video indicated someone may have been inside when it went down, KPRC Local 2 reports. The home video showed a shadow inside the building moments before it was destroyed on Sunday. Investigators said a police dog made a hit on something in the rubble. Detectives said they would further examine the site on Thursday. Oops.
