As you clearly find this man's nasty death very amusing do you think that's something that you should be shouting about?

No I don't really find anyone's death amusing but how they kill themselves can be.

Probably no licence to drive crane truck and no licence to operate a hiab crane otherwise he would know to stay 3 metres from overhead wires. As can be seen by events of the past few weeks Thailand has no safety plan in place for anything (except to make sure little Pinocchio and his loud mouth offsider get back into office)

Give it a rest

This pair were an  "accident" waiting to happen, they were operating an extending crane directly underneath live power cables without having the power turned off

I wont even mention a permit to work  5555555

Give what a rest, having an opinion?  

 

So your opinion that they were an accident waiting to happen makes his death an amusing subject, does it, as you`re backing up happy chappie`s comment.  That was what my comment was referring to.

Yes, I do find some of the ways people find to kill themselves quite amusing

This one was not the first to use this manner of exit, Gordon and his kite which was wrapped around some power cables made me laugh

Whats called for in their situation is a little thought as to what exactly the consequences of what they are about to do might be

That fellow member is in their own hands

Booms like that are not operated from inside the cab.

It is probably a Hiab truck mounted crane, the boom length is quite long but the lifting capacity is somewhat limited when the boom is extended, particularly when the Hiab crane is lifting objects over the side of the truck. In fact the same can be said for any type of crane, always try and avoid lifting heavy objects when the boom is at 90 degrees to the chassis.

The problem here was apparently some power cables

In most countries there are strict regulations as to the proximity a crane of similar can come to overhead lines. Obviously Thailand either doesn't know about these regulations or chooses to ignore them. The result an innocent man lost his life. RIP

Your comments were in relation to POST 8 actually, POST 24 was your entry into the thread

You sound like you have made a lift or two so I will bow to your knowledge of crane operation

Post 8 was included in my post 24. After more than 40 years in the construction industry yes, I have good experience in lifting methods, in fact for a period of time I operated mobile cranes.
