Crane overturns onto house after concrete breaks under outrigger

Slidell, LA – A crane assisting in tree removal overturned onto a house last Tuesday.

According to reports, the crane came to rest on a house after the concrete broke underneath one of the outriggers.

“It appears the stabilizers sunk through the concrete causing the truck to lift into the air,” St. Tammany Fire Protection District #1 said in a statement.

Four people were inside when the crane came crashing into the home, according to the Slidell Police Department. Only minor injuries resulted from the incident.
