No one seems to track tower crane accidents world wide. Annually we see 30 plus major accidents world wide with around 50 deaths. It's a dangerous game and we all need to be vigilant in the construction world.

Three cranes on one German site collapsed killing 2. Reports are that one foundation failed and crane fell into other cranes causing them to fail. As always, information dries up quickly after the accidents as the lawyers get involved. Then we never learn from the mistakes and repeat them.
