Fatal Crane Collapse at Google’s new Seattle Building

Google’s new Seattle building has been the site of the latest fatal crane collapse, claiming the lives of 4 people and injuring 2 others.

It is believed the collapse happened during a storm, causing the crane to tumble down onto one of the city’s busiest streets.

A woman and 3 men have lost their lives in the incident, 2 of them being iron workers who were inside the crane. The 2 other victims were passers-by inside cars on the street below.They all died on the scene.

A young mother and her 4 month old daughter miraculously escaped serious injury as their car was smashed on one side by the crane.

Given the recent concerns over construction site safety involving cranes in particular, it’s important we learn from incidents like these and recognise the importance of safety controls or risk devastating consequences like this.
