The 20-year-old Liao Show hotel was demolished on September 15 at 5.40 am local time and within minutes the  multi-storeyed building collapsed like a pack of cards.



The hotel was in Shenyang, Liaoning. The detonation was carried out after the entire  building was wired. 



Due to the hotel's old equipment and facilities, there were security risks because of which the city authorities decided to demolish the building.



The site will now be used to build a new five-star international hotel.
