I don’t just take a look at accidents at work that happen in the UK, with a few Google searches bringing up stories from all over the world. There was an accident at work story from New York which caught my eye this week that resulted in tragedy with one dead and another seriously injured.
The incident occurred when a crane collapsed at a construction site that was operating beneath street level next to a hole that went even further underground. The boom of the crane suddenly fell and injured workers on the opposite side of the site. The rescue operation proved tricky due to the depth of the construction.
You can see the devastation left on the construction site in the below image:
