    I was watching the coverage of the demolition of the old Oceanside Hotel in Westerly,RI tonight and it showed about a PC300 with a long boom knocking it down. Towards the end of the TV piece the operator took a big tear and about half the building fell down on his right side as he swung away trying to avoid it. It looked like it just missed the cab and smashed the right side of the machine. He was one stuipd and lucky guy. He was way to close to the structure, which was about 4 stories high.......definatly a close call..
