Here in Massachusetts, news about construction accidents has been relatively quiet. However, in Liege, Belgium, two women died earlier this week in a tragic crane accident. Three more workers were injured.
The construction accident occurred when a crane carrying materials to the second floor of a building collapsed.
The basket fell onto a lorry containing the three workers, according to the findings of the initial investigation. The two crane accident victims, the manager of a tiling company and her daughter, were in the basket of the crane when the accident occurred.
