Daily Outrage: Crane calamity: Dallas collapse the latest in a series of incidents

WHAT: A crane collapsed Thursday morning at a Dallas water pumping station, causing injuries. The incident is one of a number of such collapses this year, including one incident in New York City that killed seven people.

WHY IT’S HAPPENING: Details of the Dallas incident are still sketchy. The larger incident in New York was caused by a structural flaw that was missed despite several inspections in the previous month.

WHY IT’S A BAD IDEA: Construction workers are the most common victims in these accidents, but anyone in the area is at risk when one of these giant machines topples.

WHERE TO VENT: The Occupational Health and Safety Administration leads investigations into crane collapses, but local authorities often handle inspections and permitting.
