The owner of Rapetti Rigging Services has recently been held responsible for the accident that killed 6 construction workers and 1 tourist.

A crane collapsed while members of Rapetti’s construction business were working on the 18th  story of a New York building.

Cranes are normally held up by slings.  In this case, Rapetti used 4 of his own slings, one of which was badly worn.  Consequently, the sling snapped that was used to support a 22-story crane and  a 6-ton metal collar also used to support the crane fell on to 2 of the collars below.

The impact killed 6 innocent construction workers and a tourist.
