Hi,

Not certain if this forum is the correct one to be asking for opinions on this so do advice on correct thread if this isn't it.

This follows inquiries on a tower crane crash in Malaysia in October last year and we were wondering if anyone here could provide some insight on whether the crane was compliant (based on news photos released)?

Original article (it's in Chinese, do forgive us): Link removed/news/news.php?id=135220

Isolated photograph of rogue crane:

Do respond here or send response directly to me at leroy_luar@hotmail.com. Thanks much for your help

It seems to me that the tower crane was in error. Have there been any other cases of ones like these crashing? What further evidence do we know in relation to these cranes?
