A void to behold

A crane driver had a major fright in Castelldefels, near Barcelona, on Monday when his crane dropped into an underground void at the Ànec Blau shopping centre.

The crane appears to be a five axle Liebherr All Terrain and is owned and operated by local rental company Salvador. We understand that the crane had carried out some lifts at the centre and that, having stowed everything and begun to move off site, the ground gave way dropping the crane into what appears to be a basement or underground parking area.
Now that’s what you call a sink hole!

Thankfully no one was injured in the incident, although the damage and disruption is substantial. It could have been considerably worse though, given its proximity to shops that were open at the time.

An investigation into what happened is underway.
