April 10th, 2009

Manama Bahrain A crane collapsed that appears to be some form of a tower crane. You have a base that is knee braced, a upper rotating super structure, a platform on a jib section, and triangular jib. One article states that 3 were injured with no deaths. The accident occurred during testing, but the next sentence is that the crane is capable of 35 tons so it could not have been an overloading accident. Information is missing and the next article that I found was in Arabic. If anyone has anything to add, please feel free to do so.
