Thats three cranes coming down in the past few weeks... With as many as we have here, it's best to be prepared.

:huh: Just because out of all the tower cranes operating in the US/World, 3 have come down and made news doesn't mean we need to fear for our lives when near one. Sure they should be inspected and meet saftey criteria, but seriously I doubt anyone is any danger.

In 2006 about 117 people a day died in car accidents in the US.. out of all the things that may kill me in the next 24 hours, a tower crane is at the bottom of the list. And I plan on being downtown a lot this weekend. ^_^
