The former Ohio Edison Mad River Power Plant’s 275-foot smoke stack in Springfield, Ohio falls toward spectators and surrounding buildings as it falls the wrong way during its demolition, Nov. 10, 2010. There were no injuries reported in the accident but power was knocked out for more than 8000 customers when the smoke stack crushed several pieces of power equipment.
