Watch Horrifying Footage of 2 Cranes Collapsing in Dutch Town
A pair of cranes in the Netherlands collapsed to the ground below on Monday, sending officials looking to see if anyone was caught in the rubble.
Initial reports said 20 people were injured, but only one went to the hospital. The 20 people may actually be inaccurate, though, since that’s only the number of people estimated to be in the buildings hit by the cranes.
The cranes were in the town of Alphen aan den Rijn to fix a bridge.
A town official said, “We will start looking for people under the rubble — the victims are our first priority. But there is a collapsing danger, so first we have to check stability of the homes and cranes. At the moment we don’t know how many victims there are or if there are any.”
