Expected rains delay final demolition of Joplin hospital


When two big sections of Joplin's old Saint John's hospital finally gave way to the wrecking ball Wednesday night the demolition crew thought they might be able to bring down the rest of the building as soon as today.

But there's been a change of plans.

Workers are concerned rains that are on the way could complicate debris removal if they wait.

So they have decided they want to clear the debris from yesterday's work before proceeding with demolition.

They expect to resume demolition on Tuesday.
