Crane Mishap With Swimming Pool Damages Homeowner’s Garage

A homeowner in Shoreview, Minnesota was having a swimming pool installed in the backyard. Due to access issues, contractors felt it would be much easier to set the fiberglass shell in place by using a crane. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned, according to KARE-11 News.

The crane company, Truck Crane Service, told the homeowner, who did not want to be interviewed, that a computer error is to blame for the mishap. They said there was a lot of margin between the pools weight, and what the crane could handle.

No one was hurt in the accident. The homeowner says the crane company is doing everything to make things right, including covering the costs of the damages.
