The crane, owned by locally based United Crane Rentals Inc. was lifting a clam dredge at a dock when it went over, the outriggers were fully extended and seem to have sunk a little – possibly as the machine went over – although mats do not appear to have been used.

The operator was thrown from the cab. As yet, it is not clear whether the injured man, who was rushed to a nearby trauma center, was the operator, a banks-man or a bystander.
