ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The Genesee Towers, a nineteen-story building in Flint, Michigan implodes to the 'oohs and aahs' of spectators Sunday. Employees of Consumers Energy gathered around a nearby alleyway in the morning as they watch the building collapse in a matter of seconds. Michigan State Police and local Sheriff deputies combed through the blast zone Saturday night to make sure it was free from stragglers. The University of Michigan-Flint was closed for the day to expand the safety zone.
