    Reports of crane collapse in Brisbane, appears to be photographers

    The news on the crane collapse in Brisbane is now suggesting the two 'workers' might have been photographers.

    Yes it was a 41 year old photographer (deceased) and his 17 year old son (critical) who jumped clear of the collapsing crane. The crane was a truck crane extended to the max distance
    They apparently were taking commercial photos of the work site.
