Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 14280911Event: 04/10/2000Employee Injured When Struck By Falling Crane Boom
Employee #1 was part of a crew that was assembling a crane. The crane gantry, which was not fully raised, was in the "floating" position. The crew was standing under the crane boom, on the goose neck of a tractor trailer. When the load line started to raise the erection block lying on the goose neck, the gantry raised and the boom fell. All the workers except Employee #1 were able to jump off the trailer. He was struck by the boom and pinned to the trailer, suffering a broken back and possibly pelvic damage. When the boom was raised, Employee #1 fell from the trailer and struck his head, sustaining a laceration that required six sutures to close. He was hospitalized for his injuries, which were considered life-threatening for several days.
