Remarkable moment crew demolishes exactly half of building

A video has emerged of a large tower block in northern China being split precisely in half during a controlled demolition.

A demolition crew managed to knock down just side of the once iconic Xiangyun Building in the city of Shenyang, Liaoning Province, leaving the other half remaining.

A wrecking ball was used to knock out the supports to the structure while strategically placed explosives controlled the implosion.
