El Campo, Texas
The crane was a 75 ton Liebherr, working at an oil rig site. While moving the crane on mats, with full counterweights, the crane was swung over the side (no load?) and the crane fell over backwards onto its side.
The operator had one section of boom out and there was no load on the crane. The counterweights fell off the crane as it went over.
