Tower Crane overturned in Southern Germany

211104 tower crane accident gemmingen

A tower crane collapsed on a job site in Gemmingen, near Heilbronn in southern Germany, last Monday, damaging a truck parked nearby.

The tower crane, which appears to be a well-used self-erector with counterweighted cruciform base, was lifting a concrete panel on a new low rise residential building when it overturned, coming down between the two buildings, causing minor damage to the roof of one structure, while the tower almost flattened the delivery truck.

No one was hurt in the incident. Below are the video of the aftermath of the accident.
