Workers injured when tower cranes collapse due to high winds on construction site

Two workers were seriously injured as a result of the fall of three tower cranes at a construction site in Tyumen, which was covered by bad weather.

The accident happened on Wednesday afternoon on Timothy Karmacki Street. Strong wind with rain fell trees, tore roofs from houses and even destroyed the glazing of balconies in high-rise buildings. At a construction site on the shore of Lake Aleashevo, he knocked down three cranes, which, despite the warning of emergency services, continued to work.

The footage shows that the massive structures collapsed on the houses under construction. Initially it was reported that the managers of the developer were injured, later it became known that the crane operators were taken to the hospital in a serious condition.

Investigators are conducting an investigation into the injuries of the workers.
