A near miss occurred earlier this week, while unloading a 600 tonne Kobelco 6000SL crawler crane from a barge. We are not sure where it was, but indications are that it was somewhere in the Middle East.
The team allowed the operator to drive the crane, complete with fully rigged boom, along two ramps some distance above the ground, until the point where they tipped. Miraculously the crane remained on its tracks and no one was hurt.
Definitely one for our Death Wish series. Have a safe weekend!
