New York Prosecutors have indicted James Lomma, a crane company owner, on manslaughter and other charges stemming from the 2008 deaths of two New York City workers. The incident occurred when the giant crane snapped and crashed into a Manhattan apartment building, only two months after another crane collapsed in Manhattan killing seven people.
The indictment also named New York Crane and Equipment Corp. and J.F. Lomma Inc., and a former mechanic of New York Crane & Equipment Corp.
