It's odd thumbing up a video in which 3 people died... I wonder what caused the accident?

some terrorists maybe...

The structure was too heavy, perhaps too wind

Terrorists? Ha, ha, that was ironic, right? Or...?

Crane was called Big Blue, everything was within parameters, except the wind. The construction they are trying to lower (roof) was caught in a wind flow that made the crane fall the way it did. Two of workers that died were in a cradle on the crane you see in the background. The other worker was standing on the ground inside the stadium.

Price-cutting strikes again. Far too unwealdy a load for such a skimpy little crane. US legal parameters or not, laws of physics take the upper hand.

The roof section being lifted weighed 400 tons. The crane is more than capable of lifting that load, it's actually tipping over that is the problem. It looks fragile as it buckles, but that's because it's not design to withstand pressure from the angles created by it falling over. Cranes like these are capable of at least 1.000-1.500 tons of payload.

Two crane operators lost all National Certification, and they caused the deaths due to bowing to contractor pressure to finish the placement of the roof in high winds! Cranes were certified for 10 knot breeze, winds were over 25 knots! Both operators also might have been charged with manslaughter, for the 3 deaths! Time to search, and, I don't think they'll work in this town again, at least until they finish their prison terms.
