American football stadium implodes


The former home of the Dallas Cowboys has come tumbling down in a planned demolition set off by an 11-year-old boy who won a writing competition.

Texas Stadium had not been used by the American football team since it moved to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington after the 2008 season.

It took six months of planning, but only seconds for more than a ton of dynamite to demolish the stadium famous for its hole in the roof.
