20 feared injured.
That was unfortunate.
Doesn’t take an expert to see that barge was not adequate to support those two cranes lifting and moving such weight…
That was brutal to watch.
At at 44 seconds you can hear the guys yelling cause they know it’s not going to work but the crane operator keeps moving the load…
I’ve watched plenty much smaller cranes lifting smaller loads on bigger barges here in Vancouver, much of the shore of Olympic Village was built using cranes on barges.
It doesn’t take much before they the barge starts of start listing over even when it’s one crane centered correctly.
Was that the crane operator screaming in video #2?
Julianabrug Stort Neer! I think it’s Dutcinese for Holy Fuck!
I blame the Jews.
There was a crane involved: you must blame Russian Jews…
There seemed to be some question about bringing a howler monkey to such an event.
That’s the sort of stupidity you expect to see in the third world, the Dutch used to be smarter than that. Or it could be a case of wooden shoe, wooden head, wooden listen.
mebbe they hired our ruskie crane operator friends to save a few kronen ??.. that was too horrible to watch.
Only three tugs, three barges, and two cranes?
Hard to say what started that, ballast issues on the one barge? Cable failure? Strut failure, or simply operator failure.
