Crane work should be stopped at the first sign of bad weather. Here’s an unfortunate case where it wasn’t.

Terry Weaver of Austin TX, and Thomas Fairbrother Jr. of Grand Saline, TX, were working on a crane at the University of Texas at Dallas. Strong gusts of winds up to 45 mph began to shake the crane. It toppled over killing both men at the scene.

Weaver had twenty five years of experience working on cranes. He leaves behind a wife, daughter and two grandchildren.
