Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 202220174Event: 12/21/2000Employees Injured And Killed By Unstable Dredging Crane
On December 21, 2000, Employee #1 and #2 were involved with the operation of a crane on a dredging barge where they were recovering material from a waterway. As the crane proceeded to lift a load on board, the crane became unbalanced and fell into the waterway. Both employees jumped from the control cab of the crane. Employee #2 landed upon the deck of the barge where he received cephalic (head) injuries. While, Employee #1 fell hitting the deck and subsequently plunged into the waterway. The impact of him striking the surface of the deck and water most likely knocked him unconscious, leading to his drowning.
