October 10th, 2008

Zibo City, China. A tower crane operating near a school collapsed and killed five children. The children were killed by falling bricks rather than directly by the crane. The operator survived but was taken to the hospital

This is the second time this decade that a tower crane in China has fallen over and landed on a school killing children. With the tiny news story that this is, how many cranes are actually falling over in China? Hell, five children dead and you have to look for the story. It really makes me wonder how many cranes are actually falling over world wide and why. We need to know in order to learn the causes and not repeat history.
