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.
As per the report sender, “It seems it was an engineering problem rather than a rigging problem. The crane is a 100 ton Link-Belt. The panel was removed without any further harm.”
