<br />
The 30-story-tall crane, capable of lifting 1 million pounds, fell over at a LyondellBasell refinery in southeast Houston about 2 p.m., said Jim Roecker, the company's vice president for refining. <br />
<br />
The casualties were in the vicinity of the crane, but officials still were not certain whether they were on the crane or under it, Roecker said. <br /><br /><img src=http://www.gearthhacks.com/showimage.php?image=112807/962197crane-collapse.jpg>

You need to move the historical imagery slider to Sept 2008 to see the collapsed crane in GE.
