Castor Bay Ireland. Improper pick points and likely no use of a B&O (backing out tool) lead to this crane jib being imbalanced. As soon as the jib was free it immediatly pendulumned vertical and broke wrapping itself around the jib of the mobile crane. The operator and crane were in danger for four more hours until the jib could be removed.

Mark your pick points when the crane goes up and this will not happen.
