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.
When police arrived, they found the crane truck, owned by Neon Palm Nursery of Santa Rosa on its side with a palm tree attached. The palm tree was to be placed on a nearby flatbed trailer.
