Construction cranes are commonplace in downtown Austin. But yesterday morning, there was a unique worksite accident when a crane at a construction site collapsed. Amazingly, no one was injured.
Sadly, that wasn’t the case for another Austin employee. Earlier this month, an employee was killed in a construction accident after falliing off the shell of a building under construction.
With all the construction going on around town, I guess it’s probably more surprising that more of these stories are not in the news.
