Yesterday was no fun. I was in there looking at the crane before lunch they were loading weight onto the crane when I guess it happen. I was lucky to be on the other side of the plaint eating my lunch when it happen.

It's hard to imagine how big that is, or what it must have been like when it fell. Sorry about the loss of life and injuries. Glad you weren't near it, Link.
