A truck crane overturned onto a house in Orlando on Tuesday when one of the outriggers sank into soft ground while loading shingles onto the roof of the house.
The fully extended main boom sliced through the roof, fortunately the residents of the home, were out at the time and no was hurt in the incident.
The roofing company stated that the crane, owned and operated by Beyel Brothers, was rented by the shingle supplier and that it had set one of the outriggers up on the grass without using mats. The crane was unloading the last of four pallets which it went over narrowly missing a roofer. It also looks as though the other outrigger on the tipping side was short rigged.
Two other Beyel cranes recovered the overturned machine and the roof was patched.
