"I Don't Think That's Correct"




This isn't a windy day. And look at some of the wind speeds in Dallas shortly after the accident. That's not knocking over a crane.

After careful investigation, we have determined that this crane was knocked over by the arsonist who blew up the West, Texas fertilizer plant. I know nobody asked us, but we're important, dammit.

Thank God we have Barry Green, who knows more about every subject than all the experts. He reminds me so much of Barak Obama. 'Cept for being short and white.

Actually a light breeze on an improperly loaded crane absolutely could tip it over. There's too many variables that as of this time have yet to be determined to say for sure. It doesn't take 25mph gusts or anything like that. When the load leaves the ground and isn't properly loaded or rigged, all bets are off.

Winds in downtown areas can be impacted by buildings and wind chutes. And depending on the balance of weight, etc...it is entirely possible that a gust could tip a crane. NASCAR drivers say that there are times when you could spin out a 4,000 pound race car with the push of a finger when the cars are in delicate balance. Point being, you don't know, and it is possible.

wind can rock the payload, and tip a crane.

Perhaps actual witnesses are better equipped to comment on what happened.

The outriggers were not extended. Rookie mistake.

Outriggers were extended and pushed back by end pressure ! Think wind wont make a difference ? Let me take you up in a basket in a ten mph wind ! Look at the big blue fall on u tube ! Number one operator said wind was too high !! Idiot said he could do it ! Soooooo!!!
