Another Crane Collapse

What's going on with cranes lately?

Crane Collapse Kills 4 at Houston Chemical Plant

There has been a spate of crane collapses nationwide in recent months. In New York City, two crane accidents since March have killed nine people — more than the total number of deaths from incidents involving cranes over the past decade. There have also been crane accidents in Miami and Las Vegas.

We even had a crane accident in Orlando. A tree trimming crew lost control of a rented crane and it fell onto a house, destroying it. The crew fled the scene, but eventually returned.
