March 6th 2006

Coatesville New Zealand A self erecting tower crane was being folded up during dismantle when the a frame hung up. Three men climbed the crane to physically force the a frame clear. You can't know the forces involved, but they managed to shake the frame clear. When it cleared two of the three jumped clear. The thrid man was struck in the head and died on the scene.

Second crane with man basket? Relieve pressure and use a proper tool to get clearance such as a sleever bar? I wasn't there but I can't imagine that there wasn't a less cowboy way to acomplish this task.
