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.
Anthony Paul Goodyear, 19, Mobile, Ala., died as he was sliding a metal plate under a crane stabilizer when the boom of the crane rotated and hit a nearby power line.
