A man was yes­ter­day taken to hospi­tal for treat­ment af­ter a crane col­lapsed in Swieqi. The crane col­lapsed onto a build­ing site, caus­ing some dam­age.

One worker, the op­er­a­tor of the crane, needed to be treated for shock. The ac­ci­dent hap­pened at around noon in Triq ix-Xiber.

The boom – ver­ti­cal arm of the crane – top­pled over onto the build­ing site, dis­lodg­ing the ve­hi­cle car­ry­ing it, which came to rest on its side on stone slabs sep­a­rat­ing the road from the build­ing site.
