    Background: A 15-storey hotel in Nashville, Tennessee, was demolished in a matter of seconds on Sunday night (June 13). Experts in instant demolition brought the building to a spectacular end by dynamiting the foundations. They claimed it was both the quickest and the cheapest way of levelling the Andrew Jackson hotel, a city landmark and one time haunt of gangster John Dillinger.

    SYNOPSIS: Experts in instant demolition bring a spectacular end to one of the most famous landmarks in Nashville, Tennessee -- the fifteen-story Andrew Jackson hotel. Lets look at that again, from a different angle.

    The owners had decided to remove the hotel for a more profitable project. So the demolishers said quickest -- and cheapest -- way to level it would be to dynamite the foundations.
