Great video: contractors implode public housing building

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, S.C. - Now you see it.  Now you don't.  Scott Towers in downtown Greenville, South Carolina was reduced to rubble Sunday morning.

The 14-story public housing building was leveled to make way for new apartments.

With the push of a button, about 700 explosives sent the Scott Towers crashing to the ground in 17 seconds, as a massive cloud of dust shot hundreds of feet into the air.

The building folded in on itself and the contractor called it "perfect."
