Spectacular demolition of the Radio Network House in Christchurch City
This morning at 8pm it took 60 kilograms of explosives for the demolition of the Radio network House, a 14 story building in Christchurch. My husband woke up from a bomb like sound but I slept through it. Another building gone.
On Trade Me, an online auction side, you could bid for the chance to push the button and implode the building. A man from Christchurch won the bid with $26,000.00. This amount will go to the restoration of the Isaac Theatre Royal. The man didn't press the button himself but gave the chance to 6 year old Jayden, who has cancer. His push on the button resulted in the building coming down nicely without damaging any nearby buildings.
