The scene in Singapore earlier today
The boom of the Weserhütte crane appears to have flipped over backwards after the equipment it was using broke free, causing a sudden unloading of the boom.
The boom fell across the rear end of a Bauer piling crane working behind it, with the boom nose ending up in a canal. That’s all we have.
