A large loader crane overturned in Heerde, the Netherlands today after one of its outrigger beams snapped. The boom came down onto the roof of a house killing one of the men working on the roof.
The 45 year old construction worker was believed to have been employed by Manina BV a local roofing company that also owned the crane. He is believed to have been guiding and spotting the load of roofing material when it came down.
The fallen crane was later recovered by another loader crane with a suspended platform used by the slingers.
