Falling load injures one

A man was injured yesterday in a crane accident in Aberdeen, Scotland. The incident at the Beach Leisure Centre, reportedly involved a falling load landing on his legs, although details are scarce.

We understand that the injuries are very serious but not life threatening and no one else was injured.

The scene yesterday after the incident

Vertikal Comment

While we recognised the crane’s owner from its distinctive colour scheme, we have no information yet on what happened apart from what we have been sent and managed to confirm with other news sources, all of which is published above.

None of it makes it absolutely clear exactly what happened, or if the crane was at fault in any way. We hope to receive more information tomorrow and will update this item when that happens.
