Scary Video Shows Giant Cranes Collapse in Small Dutch Canal – Incident Photos and Video
At least 20 people were injured Monday when two huge cranes positioned atop a barge collapsed onto houses in the Dutch town of Alphen aan den Rijn.
The cranes were being used to hoist a large section of bridge across the canal when one of the cranes – and the bridge section – collapsed onto houses lining the waterway, causing the second crane to go down with it.
Media reports are saying at least 20 people were injured in the incident, including several with serious injuries.
Video of the incident clearly shows the cranes lifting the section of bridge when the barge begins to list, sending workers scattering, and then the cranes came crashing down. Check out the video below:
Here’s another video taken shortly after the incident showing an incredible amount of damage to the houses. More photos added below.
