The WFXL tower in Doerun, Georgia had to come down after all the damage suffered in that military helicopter crash that killed four, but another TV tower stands only yards away, and Wednesday night the neighboring WALB tower is down and out of commission.
Demolition crews detonated 27 charges to bring down the precariously leaning WFXL tower. They hoped it would fall like a chopped tree.
The big problem was the wires for WALB and WFXL's towers criss-cross. The outcome feared most became reality.
Both towers collapsed. Now two stations have a big challenged ahead, but no injuries from the bungled demolition.
