Las Vegas, Nevada: On August 13th 2020, the Jedi noticed a Genie 150 Boom Lift had toppled over. The worker broke his back and arm. He remains in the hospital.
The Lift Was Fully Extended When it Fell
The crane caused sizable damage to Allegiant Stadium when the crane toppled over. The worker broke his back & arm. He remains in the hospital with serious injuries.
The crane was overextended. The auto-leveling sensors should have been blaring off and the lift should have gone into 'snail mode'. Either the worker wasn't paying attention or the crane's sensors failed. A painter from Vergith Contracting in Henderson, Nevada took the photo.
According to one worker, there were 3 service requests for the lift that were never addressed by the rental company. The lift is a Genie 150 Boom Lift. The 150 means the lift can extend 150 feet before toppling. As you can see, the lift was overextended.
This is not the first time a crane has fallen at Allegiant Stadium but it is the first time they have admitted a crane falling (See Crane Member Spills Dirt on May 25, 2020). On August 13th, a crew member was painting outside of the stadium. As you can see from the photo, the lift was fully extended.
