It's demolition day for the Jet Star Roller Coaster in Seaside Heights, NJ. The roller coaster became a symbol of Sandy's destruction at the Jersey Shore when it fell into the Atlantic Ocean following the Casino Pier collapse.

Weeks Marine will begin the first phase of the project today which will include the removal of the Jet Star Roller Coaster and other debris that remains in the water.
