Crane topples over in Swieqi
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.
