Harvey, LA

Gantry fell and killed a supervisor.  A crew was preparing to walk a 3900 Manitowoc crane across a highway this week. The boom was lowered onto a flatbed trailer for transport assistance. The 35 year old supervisor was removing the pins to lower the gantry to allow passage under some power lines. When the last pin of the gantry was removed the gantry fell striking him in the head.
