Crane Unable

Are Crane Collapses the Shark Attacks of 2008?


M-14 in both directions near Gotfredson Road in Washtenaw County is closed because of a construction crane accident.

A crane collapsed Tuesday at the construction site of a high-rise condominium, killing two workers, injuring four and smashing into a home that the contractor had been using as an office, police said.

Emergency workers on Sunday continued searching for victims or survivors of a crane collapse that killed four construction workers and injured 17 others at a four-story townhouse in Manhattan.

Re: Crane Unable

They've been utilizing a giant crane directly over my office for the past two weeks. They've dropped things and each time it shakes the room and little particles fall down from the ceiling.

Dmek, don't you work at Alumax? I didn't hear about the crane thing...

Re: Crane Unable

It's totally bizarre. I had never heard of a crane collapsing and now 3 in 2 weeks? Strange to say the least. I don't like heights, and just looking at those huge things makes me queasy. It would be just about my worst nightmare ever to be on or around one of those things when it went down.

yes, and i guess it was kept in house. because no one was hurt. and it was a 35000 crane, not 35 ton. but still a big over head crane
