A couple in Melbourne had a close call with a 33 tonne drilling rig that crashed through the roof their house.
The elderly couple’s home was devastated by the falling crane recently after annoyed neighbours complained that it was an accident waiting to happen. Residents had called in to their local council to complain prior to the incident.
The crane shattered the roof of the house, smashed tiles and sent bricks flying all around.
The 2 grandparents were at home at the time and were lucky to escape uninjured when the crane collapsed onto their home. The crane was in use on the construction site next door and was being loaded onto the back of a semi-trailer.
The driver of the crane was not injured.
