A crane rental manager and a site supervisor were acquitted of assault and endangerment charges stemming from a crane accident in 2018. Timothy Braico, 46, and Terrence Edwards, 44, were acquitted in a non-jury trial in New York, according to the New York Post.
Video of the accident posted by the New York Post, showed the moment a Jekko tracked mini crane toppled out of a multistory building under construction in Harlem, injuring two workers, including one that was pulled off the building.
According to the news report, Braico, rental company employee, had been accused of renting the crane without ensuring it was properly set up and then allowing untrained workers to operate it. Edwards, a supervisor on the project, had been accused of telling an untrained worker to operate the crane.
