Boom Failure

Brief Description of Incident:
Two lineman suffered severe injuries when the upper boom failed while they were aloft. The truck was a 65′ Teco boom that apparently separated just above the knuckle where the fiberglass meets the metal. Both were airlifted to hospital with several broken bones and internal injuries. Reports right now is the injuries are not life threatening.
If you have any of these type bucket trucks, please have them inspected ASAP.
