“Given the potential dangers of bringing down the largest structure of its kind... If this is the biggest story, we’re really glad about that,” Chief Marketing and Communications Officer Goldie Taylor told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Over on Twitter, Taylor “sincerely apologized” on MARTA’s behalf for ruining the live shot.
