    Wow the speed of the sequencing was off the charts. Particularly like the openings on the top and large doorway on the bottom for pressure relief...wouldn't have wanted to be standing anywhere near that doorway...had to be a hurricane force wind.

    Guy takes down a chimney with a handheld power hammer. Don't worry folks, he's wearing a hardhat. 0:53 video:



    The video description is a gem:

    Manual demolition of the chimney. It was impossible to use explosives, the chimney contained arsenic. Czech Rebublic - 2018 - old textile factory Benar.
    Info update 26.9.2018: i have new information. Chimney contained arsenic not asbestos! I am sorry. This method used because: Arsenic, low budget (the city council was paying for this 35 000 USD) and very low byrokracy with compared the dynamite blast.

    Since he collected most of the 35 grand, maybe all if he salvaged bricks, pretty non-nonchalant step off rubble pile, picked up shovel and exited path of falling tower. He knew what he was doing, visibly selecting areas to penetrate and achieve fall away from structures.
    I cannot remember his name, but a very well known British mason did things like this. A working class hero, even had a TV program, blogging if you will, traveling about to document demise of industry and labor in the UK.
