CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WTVC) — A crane was removing a tree between two homes in North Chattanooga on Friday when it apparently toppled over.
The crane belonged to a local tree removal service. It lost balance and crashed through the roofs of two nearby houses. The Chattanooga Fire Department says no one was hurt.
Video and photos shared from the scene show the crane on its side next to a home, with the tip of the boom resting over the roof of the next home over.
Several crews arrived on the scene later on Friday afternoon to remove the fallen crane.
Officials had to rent two larger cranes in order to handle the weight of the fallen one.
One Chattanooga firefighter told WTVC reporters that this was the first crane he has seen on top of a home.
