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.

Toronto Canada, Kroll Luffer looses a jib during a wind storm. No deaths are reported and outside of the crane damage the only other damage reported was the power lines being taken out. How many luffers loose jibs during winds? Is it not setting up the right radius to weather vane at night?
