A tower crane has collapsed at a construction site in Hod Hasharon, central Israel seriously injuring the 55 year old operator.
A 20 year old tractor driver also died at the scene, but it is unclear if he was in his vehicle at the time and how it relates to the crane accident. Local reports say that the crane collapsed from its base and that the weather was very stormy at the time with strong winds.
The jib of the crane came down on two rows of shops but there were fortunately no injuries reported in the ground. At this stage there are no other details of what actually happened.
