December 25th, 2007

Xi'an China a tower crane suffered what appears to be a structural failure. The mast has broken and torn just above the collar and landed on the building that it was building. The article doesn't give me good details and since I don't speak Chinese, I don't have any details as to the injuries. The crane appears to have hit the scaffolding so hopefully it was at least clear. I'm not sure if the accident occurred during a storm or during use. Since it's China, and the details are few, I'm not going to speculate any further. Link to story and video.
