Boom truck/platform overturn

A boom truck/platform overturned in Brooklyn, New York yesterday injuring the two men in the basket.

The men were working on a very high utility pole alongside a man road, when it tipped. Fortunately both were wearing harnesses and lanyards. They remained in the basket and suffered non-life threatening injuries, one man broke a rib, while the other is reported to have broken his ankle.
The boom came down on a sandbanck

It looks as though the outriggers beams were not extended
