Sky Fool

Suspended in midair this giant crane left a German family with more daylight than they had expected when it was hired to remove trees from in front of their windows at Lilienthal in Germany.

Instead of removing branches and trees to give the property more light, the giant crane toppled over, smashing a massive hole in the roof and leaving the property uninhabitable.

The family of three that lived in the property have now been forced to move in with relatives while experts work out how to make the property secure and eventually repair it.

Police spokesman Jurgen Menzel said: "They ended up seeing more of the sky than they had hoped for.

"The damage was extensive to both the house and the crane, and the recovery operation was complicated because there was not a lot of room to get a second crane in.

"The crane driver had extended the site supports correctly but the driveway of the property gave way, with the support sinking into the earth and causing the crane to topple over."

Nobody was hurt in the incident as the family were in a different part of the building at the time. They were treated for shock.
