November 22nd, 2009

Fuyang China A Tower Crane collapsed killing four people and injuring 2. The job site has at least three cranes with the one in the accident being a different model than the other two. No good details were found showing why or how the accident happened. With most Chinese accidents I'm just happy to gleam what I can.
What I find interesting in this one is that the counterweights don't have reinforcement inside of them and the one is pulverized. I'm just happy that I don't recognize the brand or model of crane. As I used to say as when I was an iron worker and saw a problem, "That's not my chicken to worry about."
