Lt Col Jetsada told The Phuket News today that the crane collapsed when it was moving concrete slabs.

“The weight of the slabs was too much for the crane, this caused it to collapse,” he said.

“Police have not yet laid any charges in the case as the investigation is still ongoing,” Lt Col Jetsada added.
