Outrigger accident in Cape Cod

Submitted by on Sunday, 31 October 2010No Comment

A boom truck tipped over in Wychmere harbour, Harwich, Cape Cod, Massachussets, yesterday after the ground gave way beneath one of its front outriggers.  The crane, which is owned by locally based Baxter Crane was lifting a section of a wood framed building , when the outrigger punched through the ground and virtually flipped, with its boom nose ending up in the water.  A man was checked out by the emergency services but did not require treatment, there were no other injuries.  A Federal OSHA representative who was in the area at the time, is investigating.
