Oops! Buidling Fails To Fall

A building in the downtown Miami, Florida metro was imploded this morning (6/28).

However, the 12-story structure which developers hoped to demolish in a "clean shoot" did not come down as expected.

While the outside of the building crumpled, the interior section held fast.

Word from the scene is that the explosive package in the center did not detonate.

The developers who own the building want to clear the land for a new 15-story building that will be an office and residential complex.
