After several days of anticipation, the cranes located at the Hard Rock hotel have been imploded. You can see the moment it happened below.
It looks as if one of the cranes did not fall properly, and is still leaning on the bulding. The larger crane has broken off completely and fallen correctly onto North Rampart. This is a developing story, we will update this article as we receive more information.
