    In bellevue a 6x12 about 15 feet long fell down an elevator shaft and hit a guy in the head. The GC responsible was Morteson Construction. They're very much so still in business and the job is going strong.

    Also a crane fell over and killed a microsoft attorney in his apartment in Bellevue as well. I forget the GC, but they're still very much so in business.

    My roommate's brother in law is the pm on the crane job, and my dad's friend is the pm on the Morteson job. Both GC's are self insured and aren't going out of business any time soon.

    This looks odd everytime I watch it. That crane is WAY off in the distance.

    I like how the wheels folded flat and popped off. And where was the boom on that crane?

    Perhaps there were... 2 cranes. Looks like the counter weight on the back of the on in the video though.

    But wow. That was just... BAM!

    and the "Fatality" comment almost made me fall out of my chair. Seriously.
