Dual tower crane collapse in Russia
Two tower cranes overturned in Tyumen, central Russia, on Wednesday last week in strong hurricane force winds.
The entire incident was caught on video which shows one crane going over and striking and bringing down a second one. One cab landed on the ground, while the other was caught on an adjacent building, helping to lessen the impact. The two crane operators that were in the cabs apparently survived and are now in a stable condition.

Some reports claimed that three crane had gone over, and that one man was killed in the incident, but we have not been able to corroborate that. One question that ought to be asked is why the operators were still in the cabs in hurricane force winds?
