20220214 tandem lift boat goes wrong

The incident happened in Karachi, Pakistan on the 9th of Feb when two mobile cranes tried to lift a boat out from the water and load it onto a low loader.

From the video, it can be seen that both cranes are slowly lifting the boat out of the water when suddenly the lifting devices on the red-colour mobile crane snap, causing a weight transfer onto the other mobile crane. It was subsequently dragged down by the weight of the boat.

It is not reported if anyone was injured in the incident.
