Mexico City, Mexico
On September 17, 2002 a 330ton Demag crane that was disassembling a tower crane in Mexico City, tilted to the side.
There is no official version of what caused the accident.
Seems the outriggers were not fully extended, also seems the ground might have failed.
The tower crane was on the left side (working on the rear side of the crane) and it tilted to the right side.
