(Dallas, TX)  --  Yesterday's Uptown Dallas building implosion started out okay --  but didn't end well.

Demolition crews were trying to bring down the former Affiliated Computer Services building at Haskell and Central Expressway. 

The explosives brought down most of the eleven-story structure.

But when the dust cleared, the central core -- with the elevator shaft and stairwells -- was still standing, although leaning quite a bit.

They're going to have to finish the job with a wrecking ball
