August 20th, 2008




Manresa, Spain Tower crane collapses either in the mast or foundation. Hopefully more pictures will show up in the next few days for a better description. The jib ended up destroying a house accross the street. The elderly couple in the home escaped serious injury and the operator also lived but was injured.
