August 9th, 2009

Abu Dhabi A man fell from a 132 foot tall tower crane and the circumstances are suprising. A crane operator called an engineer crazy for a desicion being made about the project. The engineer took offense and climbed the crane to discipline the operator. He was angry at the time. I lead to an altercation and the operator struck the engineer with a steel bar. The engineer fell to his death.
Due to long hours and pressures, things can get heated in construction cranes. Issues about whether or not fights should ever happen, you need to take it to the ground. A punch or scramble to the deck on a crane is almost guarenteed to lead to a fall. Even during the climb down, it might be just enough time to actually calm down enough to not feel the need to make it physical.
The crazy description might have been dead on.
