In this photograph taken on May 19, 2013, explosives go off as Dunyang highway viaduct collapses during a controlled demolition in Wuhan, central China's Hubei province. With 100,000 volt wiring running alongside the viaduct and 30 major gas pipelines underneath it, explosives experts were faced with a task requiring particular precision. The two mile long viaduct was the longest concrete bridge ever demolished in China, local media reported. CHINA OUT AFP PHOTO (Photo credit should read STR/AFP/Getty Images)
