A little man-made island in a small river had to be removed near the town of Thyregod in Denmark.
In recent years, a lot of time and money has been used to turn nature back to its former glory.
Just short of 200kg (440pounds) of explosives was used.
I work as a news-camera operator, and I filmed it; this is what happened:
0:11 I have to crouch down and cover my head, because of all the debris falling around me. Some big pieces from trees landed 12meters (39feet) from me.
0:44 A piece of the island almost hit the young journalist, filming with an iphone.
0:48 I taped a GO PRO camera to a small fence close by. Most of the fence blew apart. Its very lucky that the pillar I chose did not.

It's in danish...
Back in the studio, notice how the right camera is not selected, and the anchorman is left looking like a fool.
