Sounds like a similar diaster in Houston in the mid 80's. They were topping
off a 2,000 footer when a shackle failed causing the antenna to fall. A
videographer caught the action. He dropped his camera, pointing upward, and
ran. You can clearly see the tower zig-zag back and forth. Unfortunately, you
can also see a couple of bodies being propelled to their deaths.
The tower hit with such impact that some of the wreckage was just covered up
with dirt by a bulldozer. It was also in a very small impact area.
Remember, its only a hobby.
