Man seriously injured after becoming trapped inside fallen crane
A 37-year-old man has been seriously hurt after becoming trapped inside a 100-tonne crane that tipped over in Perth's north.
It took a mammoth two-hour rescue mission to save the operator whose legs were crushed.
The force of the toppling machine on a Wanneroo worksite caused nearby homes to shudder.
Helen Richardson said she heard a "big bang" as the crane collapsed on Nicholas Road at midday on Monday.
"We both looked up and thought, 'I wonder what that noise was'," she said.
