  • Here's how they do it in Australia.

    Incident: Friday Morning 26/09/08 Castle Hill/Sydney

    - 9 Day Old 250t Leibherr Crane (never used before).
    - $4mill price tag.
    - Failure of back propping beneath the 200mm thick concrete deck.
    - Crane support outrigger punches through slab causing crane to lose balance and collapse across the site and onto adjoining property.
    - Crane balanced in the air for approx 1 hour before entire rig & boom collapse completely across site and rigs falls through to the basement level.

    Gee , all that trouble just to spot the fuelmaker FMQ-2 in the building before the roof was put on !

    I wonder if the unemployement system Down under covers crane operators

        Some how I don't think the concrete was 200mm thick,then again the guy who was in charge of the support post's underneath, the ones laying on the ground,yea that guy.I bet he's looking for a new job.What do you mean it's was only off by eight inches.
