Sikorsky S-64 Skycrane Drops Huge A/C Unit onto Street
A huge industrial air conditioning unit crashed onto a downtown Oakland, California, street seconds after it was lifted by a helicopter.
Witnesses say that nobody was hurt when the cables snapped and the unit about the size of a truck fell onto the pavement and sent construction workers running for cover on Saturday. Brothers Gabriel and Rudi Tcruz were walking by and stopped to record video of the Sikorsky Skycrane helicopter lifting the A/C unit. The Sikorsky Skycrane is the civil version of the US Army's CH-54 Tarhe.
