Crane Accident in Seattle
Updated On: Apr 29, 2019

Tragic Crane Accident in Seattle:

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who lost their lives, were injured, or who were affected by the crane accident in Seattle today. We are grateful for the first responders who answered the call to this terrible accident to bring aid, comfort, and support to a chaotic and horrific situation.

While initial reports stated that two crane operators were killed, we have been informed that the two workers who lost their lives were brothers from another craft.  We offer our sincerest condolences to their families and we share in their grief and sorrow as we mourn for them.  

We do not know the cause nor will we speculate on how or why this tragic accident occurred.  We offer our full support in the investigation to prevent any such future tragedies and to further improve construction safety.

In Solidarity,

Daren Konopaski
