Double Crane Fatality


Tamil Nadu, India

Two bystanders were killed on Friday when an articulated pick & carry crane overturned while trying to pull a crashed truck off the median of a divided highway in Coimbatore in the state of Tamil Nadu in southern India.

The crane started to lift the truck when it rolled forward applying a side loading to the crane, pulling it over. The two men , a painter (32), and a night watchman (66), are reported to have died the instant they were hit by the falling crane. Two similar cranes were called in to carryout a hairy looking recovery of the overturned crane.
