Crane Operator Lucky to be Alive

Manitoba Hydro Crane Accident

A crane tipped onto its side Thursday afternoon at the Manitoba Hydro building at 1330 Pacific Avenue.

Thankfully, the operator survived after being trapped in the crane’s cabin area for roughly 30 minutes. He was able to walk away on his own, but was taken to hospital with unknown injuries.

No word on what caused the crane to tip. photo/Marc Evans
