Shipyard crane truck tips

1. This afternoon. Slings have been attached to the outriggers of the crane in preparation to raise it from the water.

2. November 28, the yellow crane truck sitting on its wheels.

A crane truck at Halifax Shipyard tipped over this morning while lifting a fork-lift off the ferry Holiday Island. The forklift ended up on the harbour bottom, with the crane truck nose down over the edge of the pier. The crane driver escaped with bruises.
According to press reports there was no damage to the ferry, and retrieval operations are underway.
