Ship’s crane collapsed, two dockers killed, Indonesia

Crane of general cargo ship BISTARI 8 collapsed during cargo operation at Pontianak, Western Kalimantan, Indonesia, on Apr 4, reportedly while trying to lift too heavy weight. Two dockers were killed – one instantly by collapsed crane, another one being mortally wounded while trying to escape, in a hospital.

Quite recently, in February this year, similar accident took place at Dwikora Port, Pontianak, but luckily, without casualties or injures.
