Truck crane over in NSW

A truck crane overturned onto the building it was working on in Illawarra - South of Sydney - in New South Wales, Australia yesterday, after one of its outriggers sunk into an underground void.

The crane, a 30 tonne four axle Zoomlion QY30V truck crane, was working with its full five section boom extended to place building materials onto the roof of the building when it overturned. The operator jumped from the cab but landed badly and broke his ankle, thankfully no one else was hurt.
