    Way to much angle on the cable and rigging. Cranes are designed to lift not pull. Needed to extend the boom so that it was a straight vertical lift.

    Wonder when the last time it was inspected? This part of the world I think they get done annually.

    There was a tower crane accident in Kelowna a couple of weeks ago while they were dismantling it; five dead. There are some videos posted to the Internet by a couple of the guys on the crane just before it happened. Perhaps people should just stick to doing the job at-hand.

    5th body recovered from rubble following deadly Kelowna, B.C., crane collapse | Globalnews.ca

    Caution: NSFW language. There are also a number of other unsafe practices visible on the videos such as, no hardhat, no fall restraints, etc.

    I had the same reaction. You are talking about the chick that fell off the crane?

    I do agree with you but there was a problem with that slewing ring. That crane should have shut down long before that slewing ring let go even in rigging mode. Like @AModelCat said I’m sure it hadn’t been properly inspected in a long time. A lot of old cranes get shipped to these countries and never get seen or heard from again until there is a catastrophic failure and then they show up on YouTube. I would think the rigging or the boom would have let go long before the slewing ring if it was properly maintained.

    There have been several that met their fate in similar ways; falling off cliffs, etc. "Just one more step back... just one more... just... Oops
