Surveillance Video Shows Crane Collapse That Left 1 Injured

A Long Beach crane collapse that left one person injured and several homes damaged Monday afternoon was captured on a neighbor’s front door camera.

Ring doorbell video, shows the mobile crane parked in the 300 block of 61st Street just before 12:30 p.m. when the passenger side tires slowly begin to lift off the ground.

Several popping sounds can be heard as the truck falls onto its side and the crane comes crashing down on top of some nearby homes.

Gilmore said his wife called him to tell him about the incident when it happened. “It’s very scary because I live exactly across the street … it could have tilted the other way,” he said.

The injured person is a pastor who Gilmore said lives in the home across from his.

He said the pastor suffered some injuries but is expected to be OK.

A crew had been seen working on the power lines in the neighborhood for a couple of days before the crane collapsed, Gilmore said.
