Wrecking ball takes down chimney

A helicopter took to the skies Monday morning for an unusual demolition project.

The chopper used a wrecking ball to take down a 130 foot tall brick chimney on the Ursuline campus on Lexington Road.

The chimney has been on the campus for almost 100 years.

Using the helicopter was the developer's idea.

The company believed this would be quicker than the usual method of using a truck and a crane to knock down the chimney.

It's all part of an expansion project to build a new gymnasium and multi-use center on campus.
