Crane Wreck 2      Back to Insurance / Back Home

Thanks to Don for this collection!  This is a 4 million dollar crane.  On its first job.  Brand new.  They put it on the second floor of a project, and the concrete floor was not strong enough to support the weight of the crane and the load it was lifting.  First, it fell over after the outrigger punched through the concrete.  It sat that way for an hour before the concrete floor gave way and the whole thing fell into the basement.  Fortunately nobody was hurt.  What a costly mess.  Duhhhh, this was no "accident."  This was stupid.
