An All Terrain crane has overturned on a hospital jobsite in Mulgrave, Victoria, Australia today, whilst placing steelwork on a new laboratory extension at a cardiac centre. No one was hurt in the incident.

What caused the crane, a four axle Tadano Faun to overturn is unclear as it was working from a well built temporary road and appears to be well set up.

The hospital was occupied at the time of the incident, but the crane boom came to rest on the steelwork it was putting up and had no effect on the coronary care ward below, which continued to operate as normal.
