A car was crushed recently and another was damaged after a concrete panel fell off the side of an East Perth building site. Thankfully nobody was injured or killed but the consequences could have been horrific.

The incident was blamed on human error by the managing director of Hanssen, Gerry Hanssen who blamed the builder responsible for the project, for the incident.

According to reports, the concrete slab plummeted 3 stories, flattening one vehicle completely while the other vehicle had a smashed windscreen and extensive denting.

According to Hanssen, the workers forgot to attach the panel to an overhead crane when attempting to adjust its position.He was quick to confirm that all the correct processes and procedures were in place and that human error was responsible for the incident.He said the company would replace the damaged cars.  Source: https://www.perthnow.com.au/news/perth/car-crushed-after-concrete-falls-from-east-perth-building-site-ng-b88840966z
