Fatal crane overturn

An All Terrain crane overturned yesterday morning in Malacca, Malaysia, killing the driver of a truck that was unloading nearby.

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 truck 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).

The crane was lifting a Sany concrete pump when it overturned


I can't believe the pump is in that good of condition...
...It must have only just come off the ground before the crane went over?

The crane looks like a Tadano TR200 EXC 20t
If the concrete pump weights six tons, than this crane can lift this weight at maximum six meters with 3 boom sections bad this happened.
Condolences to the truck driver's family
