2 Killed in Miami in Second Crane Collapse in 2 Weeks

Submitted by jrlaw on Mar 9th, 2009

A crane at a construction site for a 40-story luxury condominium in Miami collapsed today, killing two workers and injuring four others. Cranes and crane operators in Florida are not regulated or licensed by the state, a fact that the Legislature is looking to change. This incident happened just 10 days after the New York City Crane Accident that killed seven. Read more about the Miami accident at the Dallas Injury Board.

As we look out our windows here in our Dallas office, we see two large cranes on a construction site for a new office building. Before these recent accidents, we had no reason to question our safety, but apparently construction site accidents occur more than we might expect.
