A crane operator is injured when his 40-ton crane tipped over on its side at a Bradenton school.
It happened Wednesday around 11am at 7700 Cortez Road West.
The crane was moving a shipping container at the Bradenton Prep Academy and firefighters say the 100-foot boom thankfully missed a nearby classroom.
The operator was taken to Blake Memorial Hospital for evaluation and treatment. No word yet on the extent of his injuries.
Another crane was brought in to pick up the turned over crane.
