Sept 11th, 2008

Auckland NewZealand, Tower crane accident during crane erection. It's not clear as to what exactly happened as reports don't address what was happening on site. One worker fell with the crane but was freed quickly and it sounds as if he was uninjured. A second was trapped for up to one hour as firefighters decided how to best free the worker. It sounds as though he was trapped by his feet and his co workers had to support his weight while decisions were made. From the picture of the rescue it doesn't look like he is comfortable even after the rescue.
