Officials said when it fell, the crane also took out some powerlines.

“The crane came over and took the powerline with it and when it went over it was so loud it sounded like a bomb went off,” witness Michael McIntosh said.

The owner of the construction company, Finfrock, said one of its workers was setting a piece of concrete but would not comment further.
