Crane Accidents

One Dead, 3 Injured, New York City Crawler Crane Crash


In what is possibly thought to be a wind-related accident, a crawler crane that was being prepared for disassembly on top of a building in Manhattan Friday, February 5, 2016 fell to the sidewalk, killing one and injuring 3. Witnesses recording video of the crane, as it was being taken down, were shocked when what seemed to be a lowering of the boom quickly became an out of control tumbling wreck of metal crashing down to the street.
