A 988-foot TV broadcast tower collapsed in Robstown, Texas yesterday morning as a result of a rusted guy wire that detached near its anchor. No tower techs or station personnel were on site when the structure failed.

A transmitter building was slighting damaged on one corner after the guyed tower fell at approximately 8:30 a.m
