A man died yesterday after a Rough Terrain crane dropped its load while working on a ranch in Johnson County, Tennessee
Details are limited however the crane was being used by a contractor to relocate a number of silos on the ranch when the man was struck by something that was dropped by the crane. This might have been a hook block or a load, but indications suggest it was the ‘headache ball’ on the auxiliary winch line. He succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
We will update this report if and when we are able.
