The scene after the two men were rescued

The incident occurred on the campus of Jackson College, where two men from Heinz Tree Service & Landscaping were working at a height of around 10 metres, removing a tree when the over-centre tubular top boom came crashing down, presumably from the rotating mechanism that operates this type of top boom.
