    quote Robert Lambie:

    i think it might be the crane folk at fault for maybe overloading the crane.
    or if thats not what made it topple then someone else…

    there was one of those huge ones you see at canary warf toppled last year also. now those are big…
    there was also one in the clydeside in glasgow at john browns ship yards went over 3 years ago. these things are HUGE…

    can you imagine being the guy in the wee box on one of those cranes and it started to go over? i think a bit of “submissive urination” would be going on on my pants. 😳 😳

    Not a long time ago one of these things fell over on a buildingsite near here. The guy on the top died in the hospital next day. I heard it was really hard to get him out of the cockpit and to the ambulance, because they coudn´t reach him. The crane started to move everytime they touched it… 🙁
