February 27th, 2010

Canary Islands. Through much of Europe fierce wind storms ripped through the country side. A gust of wind recorded at 118 mph ripped through causing a tower crane to collapse. The reality is that when winds get this strong with gusting, all bets are off and you shouldn't be near any cranes. Link to news story on the storm.

I found this on My method of finding accidents is no longer working so I'm catching up and it's back to manual searches. If you see tower crane accidents in the news, don't be afraid to share them so that we can have records and maybe something new to learn.
