    A massive five axle crane overturned on a job site in Uppsala, Sweden on Thursday.

    The crane a five axle Liebherr from the Estonian rental company Ehitustehnika/Viking Cranes was in the process of being moved on Thursday evening when the incident occurred.

    The experienced operator had the outrigger jacks down, but not extended he then raised the boom, with one section telescoped to full elevation and slewed over the side with full counterweight in place. Not surprisingly it tipped over backwards.
