CHESTER, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a northeast Iowa man died when a crane boom fell on him.
The Howard County Sheriff's Office says the boom collapsed Wednesday afternoon in Chester. The sheriff's office says 57-year-old Timothy Brandau was working at his business when the boom fell on him, pinning him to the ground. He was pronounced at the scene.
What caused the boom to fall and other details about the incident have not been released. A deputy who prepared the incident report and Iowa safety regulators didn't immediately return calls Thursday from The Associated Press.
