Frankfurt, Germany

Three men died when the 40 metre high tower crane that they were assembling in Frankfurt, Germany, collapsed on August 20th. Two of the men were on the jib at the time, the third was in the cab. More deaths were almost caused by the fact that the crane fell onto a works canteen – the cook saw the crane coming and got everybody out in time. Investigations are continuing.
