Another Crane Collapse

On the same day that New York City came out with a requirement that contractors may no longer raise or lower large cranes on construction sites unless a buildings inspector is present another crane collapsed in Miami. Two workers where killed and several others where injured when the 14,000 pound crane plummeted to the ground. As of now, there is no known cause for why the crane failed. Winds where said to have been gusty but it is not known what, if any, cause this may have had. Add this crane accident with the New York crane crash and several deaths in 2006 and this segment of the industry will most likely be put under an immense magnifying glass.
