Several dead after massive crane collapses in Visakhapatnam shipyard

As many as 11 people were killed on Saturday after a massive crane collapsed at the Hindustan Shipyard Limited in Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh.

Vizag District Collector Vinay Chand said that a new crane was being commissioned and the trial run was being conducted to bring it into full-scale operation when the incident took place.

He further said, “inquiries will be done both from within Hindustan Shipyard and a high-level committee from the administration.”

An eight-second video showed the yellow crane crashing down at the shipyard.

Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy has directed Visakhapatnam District Collector and City Police Commissioner to take immediate action in the crane collapse incident, his office said.
