Another crane taken by a tree

A three axle All Terrain crane overturned onto a house in Franklin, Massachusetts - south west of Boston - on Wednesday. According to local reports an outrigger punched through into an underground void in the form of an old septic tank. The homeowners were apparently totally unaware of its existence.

The crane, a relatively new unmarked three axle Tadano was working with most of its main boom extended in order to remove trees from the back yard. Two large cranes from the CJ Shaughnessy fleet worked on the recovery.
