199. U2 with the magical crap?
Are you saying that the weight of the 51st floor is suddenly heavier than the weight of 60 floors?

No but that the impulse (force over time) of the building above the initiating point falling on the lower floor was much greater than the floor below could withstand. The building was both pancaking up and down at the same time, while retaining most of it's mass.
