Foul Play Is Suspected After American Tower’s Radio Tower Collapses

It’s not every day that an entire radio phone tower collapses and when it does, it usually raises a few eyebrows and causes some concern. Sunday, July 28th, a cell tower in Contra Costa, California collapses. Thankfully, no one was injured but police suspect that this may have been the work of vandals.

CBS San Francisco reported that, “Officers responded and found that the cables that hold the tower in place had been cut, causing it to fall, police Capt. Mark Ruppenthal said.” This tower stood just over 200-feet and was located west of San Ramon and Danville.

American Tower owns and manages over fifty thousand towers used by cell phone companies, broadcasters and emergency services
