Demo team creates leaning tower of Liuzhou

A Chinese city reportedly was left briefly with a new sightseeing attraction after a demolition unintentionally created a leaning tower.

The blast split the 33-story building into two parts according to plan. However, instead of collapsing into a pile of rubble, one half of the building (shown at left in photo) fell sideways, crashing to the ground, narrowly averting disaster, while the other half (shown on right) remained standing in a dangerous leaning position and was later destroyed by a crane.
