Hard Rock Hotel demolition sees two cranes collapse in New Orleans

Two cranes tumble down during a demolition implosion at the Hard Rock Hotel in New Orleans on Sunday (October 20) after strategically placed explosives detonated just after 2:30 pm local time.

Three people died and at least 20 were injured during the Hard Rock Hotel collapse on October 12.

The filmer told Newsflare: "The crane was already leaning after the initial collapse and would have likely fallen down in the next few days without a planned demolition."
