Dubai crane collapses

458 dubai

Port operator DP World says 10 people were injured when one of the massive cranes at Dubai's largest port, toppled over after a container ship hit a harbor wall. The UK-flagged CMA CGM Centaurus contacted the quay while berthing at Jebel Ali on Thursday, May 4, causing the crane to collapse suddenly.The company also says a second crane was shifted off its rails in the incident. An investigation is ongoing.  Security-camera footage of the accident shows trucks moving on the dock moments before the yellow crane comes crashing down. This serves as a good occasion to reminder operators of the Pacific Pilotage Authority's Notice to Industry, issued on March 4, 2016 on the positioning of container cranes during arrival and departure of vessels in Vancouver and Prince Rupert.
