Three injured in crane incident

11. April 2018 | Comments (0)

Three men were severely injured this morning near Nantes, France, when the crane they were working with came into contact with high voltage overhead power lines.

The three axle All Terrain crane - owned by AltéAd - was working at the premises of TBM Services, a manufacturer of cabins and temporary offices on an industrial estate in Bouguenais, near Nantes Airport when we understand the hoist line touched the power lines causing the electricity to rush to earth badly burning two of the men working with the crane on the ground, while a third man who was working close by was also injured.

The crane operator knew enough to stay put and was able to exit the crane cab around an hour or two after the incident occurred - he was totally unharmed. One of the two men is said to be in a critical condition, while the second’s condition was described as serious. According to the hospital one of the men is 29, the other 18. The third man is less seriously injured.
