Video: Surreal footage of crane accident surfaces
New footage of the crane collapse in Alphen aan den Rijn on Monday afternoon has surfaced. The video footage shows people running for their lives underneath a dust cloud caused by the collapsing cranes. The surreal images make it clear that Mayor Liesbeth Spies was right when she said that it is a miracle that no one got injured in the accident. The video was recorded by a security camera that hangs outside the David's Place bar, one of the buildings crushed by the falling cranes. The crane operators and construction company responsible for the renovations of the Juliana Bridge have received critique from many experts following the accident. They believe that it was easily preventable. One expert even went so far as to call the crane operators "amateurish"
