Residents of Sacred Heart Avenue, Sliema, got a second fright from a crane accident in as many weeks when part of a tower crane crashed during assembly this evening. No one was injured
The incident took place in the same spot where a tower crane crashed onto buildings on May 20, damaging walls and cables but injuring no one.
Today's accident happened when a small crane was being used by the same contractor to assemble a tower crane. A section of the tower crane fell to the ground when a steel wire snapped.
Officials of the Occupational Health and Safety Authority returned to the scene to investigate.
