Crane Incident Could Have Killed Worker


The Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) says someone could have been killed in an accident at an office and residential construction site near Gouger Street in Adelaide.

The union says a cage fell 70 metres to the ground on Tuesday after the cable connecting it to a crane snapped.

CFMEU assistant secretary Aaron Cartledge says a gutter on a neighbouring building was damaged when the two-metre cage dropped, but the mishap could have been worse.
