The recent boom collapse in Manhattan, New York resulted in the death of Michael Simermeyer. Ironically, the same building inspector, Patrick McGarrigle, on site who failed to check a cable involved in the accident was also connected with an fatal crane accident in 2008.
A 60-foot crane fell off a barge and landed in the water in East Boston. Crews are still working to remove the crane.
