Crews tried to demolish the upper ring of the stadium on Monday afternoon after Sunday's failure, and this time they succeeded.
A Facebook event called "Throw Rocks at The Pontiac Silverdome until it collapses" is making its way around social media. The blasts were meant to break the beams and cause the colossal ring to come crashing down, WDIV reported. Crews said the building could fall in on its own today.
Cuppetelli said that unless the wiring could be fixed, "we will take it down mechanically".
But construction officials told CNN affiliate WXYZ that while the explosives did break the steel beams, the Silverdome was "built a little too well".
As the dust around the stadium settled, one Twitter user wrote, "We're 10 minutes post-explosion & the #Silverdome is still standing". At 8:30 a.m., the first charge went off.
The Pontiac Silverdome was the former home of the Detroit Lions (1975-2001), the Detroit Pistons (1978-1988) and the North American Soccer League's Detroit Express (1978-1980).
