While glu-lam beams were being set across the garage area of the house using a 30 ton Manitex 30100 crane that has a maximum bound length of 84 ft, the crane slipped from the outrigger pods on the right side which had been sitting in soft soil. The crane tipped over, the boom came down and struck the outside wall of garage. The employee was standing on the glu-lam beam and started running across the beam, when he was knocked to the garage floor and struck by flying debris. He was treated for lacerations to the scalp and head. The employee was hospitalized for his injuries.
