Pensioner dies after hot tub falls from crane
A pensioner was killed when a hot tub fell from a crane in Bristol yesterday.
The large crane was reportedly lowering the hot tub into a garden.
A spokesman for Avon and Somerset Constabulary said: “We were called at 9.26am to assist the ambulance service at an address in Mangotsfield after a man was seriously injured by a heavy load which had fallen from a crane. Tragically, the man, aged in his 70s, was pronounced deceased at the scene.”
The Health and Safety Executive confirmed it was “aware of this incident and investigating”.
Burcombe Crane Hire, whose branding was seen on the crane, could not be reached for comment.
