Tequesta Fire-Rescue spokesman Peter Allen said the crane was being used to replace an air-conditioning unit when it tipped over and landed on a house on Golf Club Circle.

The crane appeared to have crushed a portion of the roof, but the extent of the damage wasn’t known.

Nobody was injured in the accident.

The crane was owned and operated by Crane Service & Rigging. A larger crane was being used to restore the toppled crane.

Vertikal.net Comment: While the outriggers were not properly set up in terms of mats or spreader plates, this does not appear to have played any part in the overturn, which looks to be more related to simple overloading/lifting beyond the radius fort the weight of the load.
