Officials set off thundering explosions Sunday to topple two cranes looming precariously over a partially collapsed hotel in New Orleans, but most of one crane appeared to be left dangling atop the ruined building while the other crashed down. The explosions set off massive clouds of dust, but officials say everything went exactly as expected.

If that was a success I'd hate to see a failure.

Went as planned? There is a massive unsecured part of the crane hanging off the roof of the building. That's as dangerous as it gets.

"went as planned" being followed up by "recovering the bodies" doesn't sound too good

This construction company keeps finding itself between a Rock and a Hard Cafe.

Success? Looks to me like the demolition was set up by the same company who did the construction on the building.
