If any body has driven I 5 through Seattle in the last 10 years you can see the cranes
Count them sometimes you can count 25 or 30 cranes

I have a little bit of of crane operator back ground but just Small stuff on fishing boats.
3 ton to 10 ton .
Stuff moving crab pots or fishing nets .
On a boat .
Nothing like this but .
Wind weather is a big deal .
I'm going to say if they were taking apart one.
And the storm moved in .
They were caught off guard.
We had a hell storm moving though here at the same time .it came in quick

I must have slept through the wind. I just got up and saw this on the news and was wondering WTF? When It said 4 dead first thing I thought of was the operator, what a way to go, feeling that damn thing go and noting you could do. It was a miracle so few were actually hurt. Could have been soooo much worse.

I'm a certified NCCCO mobile crane operator, derrick, signalman, and rigger. The operator is responsible for everything! If in doubt shut it down.
