    Default Odd Video: Possible Death At Houston Demolition Site...

    This is somewhat creepy. From youtube, posted by RedStormNYC:

    The Crowne Plaza Hotel in Houston, Texas was imploded on November 11, 2007. However; playback of the implosion shows what appears to be a door being closed seconds before the building began to crumble. Police say a bystander recorded a similar image as well and said he saw a person. The demoliton team who imploded the building cannot confirm how a person might have been able to gain access to the site. A search crew and K9's at the site have detected blood beneath the debris.

    "Closed"? One would think it would have blown open.

    Yeah, this has been all over the news here in H-town this week. This former hotel is across the street from the hospital my husband works in. His office is on the 26th floor so he had a very good view of all the helicopters circling around the demolished hotel the day this story broke. The one video they're really concentrating on, however, is one where a person is possibly seen inside the hotel moments before the demo (not just a door closing). Although not as great as in downtown, the med. center does have a large number of homeless people in that area. Sadly, it wouldn't surprise me if it were a squatter who was inside. Very sad...

    Definitely sounds like someone was inside. Hopefully it's not the case though.

    Without seeing the other video, I wouldn't put too much weight on the one up above. The pressure changes from explosions like that will blow and suck air from various sources causing the door to close and open. It also could have just swayed due the rumble of the building.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    i didn't see anybody stepping out and no body would be stupid to go inside a building with explosions happening all around it.

    I dunno...there were a handful of witnesses attesting to the fact that someone was seen inside. Potentially, a disturbed person (via drugs, alcohol or psychosis) could have wandered into the building. That is still a fairly large amount of rubble to go through, and as such the search for human remains it literally is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Sadly enough, since 9/11 the technology exists for this type of endeavor.
