An All Terrain crane overturned yesterday morning in Malacca, Malaysia, killing the operator of a hooklift vehicle.
The crane was said to be lifting a generator on to the roof of the Bandar Hilir shopping complex when the crane overturned. Judging by the pictures however it looks to have been lifting a Sany trailer mounted concrete pump – which can weigh between six and nine tonnes. The crane’s boom came down on a hooklift, owned by Southern Waste Management, killing its operator Anas Tawi, 55, who was sat in the cab at the time.
Work has been suspended for a month until the incident has been investigated by the Department of Occupational Safety and Health and the CIDB (Construction Industry Development Board).
