Operating Floor of #Fukushima Reactor 3: Crane's Jib Mast Collapses, Captured in Fuku-I Live Camera

For a several seconds after 1:35 into the video. The speed is 20X. It happened on September 5, 2013.

According to TEPCO, the mast has been safely removed using the remote control equipment. But the work took more than 3 and a half hours, from 8:20PM to 11:55PM.

This should never happen! Was it poor maintenance?

Since it is a remote controlled crane operation, probably like wound the cable up until the lead wire jammed on a pulley and sucked the jib down to the pivot point and collapsed it on itself or something stupid like the hook caught on the jib as they kept reeling in the cable...I don't see where the crane was lifting anything at the time. Ask for a new spotter.
