Another Crane Accident in Singapore. Kato Rough Terrain Crane Toppled

One of my friends has sent me an photo this afternoon that one unit of Kato 50 ton rough terrain crane has toppled inside a construction site. Although the exact location is not being mentioned, it looks like the accident has happened within a HDB site. Based on the photo, it seems that the crane operator has operated the crane with fully retracted outriggers and trying to make a swing which caused the crane to toppled sidewards. There is no further news if there is any injuries or causalities in the accident.

This is the second known crane accident prior to the crawler crane accident at Telok Ayer Market on 22nd August 2014.
