Car crushed after concrete falls from East #Perth building site

A concrete slab has fallen onto cars at a construction site on the corner of Adelaide Terrace and Plain Street in Perth.ONE car has been crushed and another seriously damaged after a concrete panel fell off the side of an East Perth building site Saturday morning.

The incident, on the site of Finbarโ€™s luxury Vue Towers, occurred just before 7am and was blamed on “human error” by Hanssen managing director Gerry Hanssen, the builder responsible for the project.

The slab fell three stories, leaving one vehicle completely flattened and barely visible while the other had a smashed windscreen and extensive denting on its front end.

Mr Hanssen, on site to inspect the damage, said workers had forgotten to attach the panel to an overhead crane when attempting to adjust its position.
