No one seems to track tower crane accidents world wide. Annually we see 30 plus major accidents world wide with around 50 deaths. It's a dangerous game and we all need to be vigilant in the construction world.

A blogger posted some pictures of a 33 story tower crane that suffered a collapse in the superstructure. It's not clear if this is a pendant failure or the tower top, but the whole superstructure is totaled and they report at least two dead.
The location of the accident isn't clear. I found the blog with Traditional Chinese but Google Maps brings up a Chhang Road in Cambodia. I unfortunately don't have a clear understanding of where this accident took place.
