Crane Accident

Crane Accident, originally uploaded by _setev.

The crane tipped over this morning right in front of my office. I literally saw it as it happened. Fortunately nobody was injured which is amazing because the boom of the crane extends right out into the middle of a busy intersection.

The crane has a 70 tonne lifting capacity so it is very large. The rescue operation used 3 different cranes to remove it and took all day.

The biggest lesson I learnt today is to always have a camera at the ready. I had to go home at lunch time to get one.
