Platform overturns while lifting

A truck mounted platform overturned on Monday at the Northgate Mall in the north side of Chattanooga, Tennessee, while lifting a sign.

The boom truck based platform, working with Victory Sign Company was in the process of lifting an old sign down from its support tower, when the crane/platform overturned injuring a man.

We are told that the man was working on the ground at the tim, but an initial report from the fire department suggest that he had been operating from the platform? Looking at the photos we have received, it looks as though the fact that only the rear outriggers were set might just have contributed to the overturn.
The front outriggers – if this unit was equipped with them – were not set

Victory Sign is based over the border in Georgia and offers a ‘Crane Service’ alongside it sign manufacturing and installation business.
