The former Ohio Edison Mad River Power Plant's smoke stake that was 275 feet tall fell the wrong way and crushed the surrounding buildings during the demolition process. The tower also knocked down two power lines and caused the power loss in the city for two hours. It all happened because the demolition company didn’t detect a crack on one side of the tower. Luckily, no one was hurt because of this mistake.
