Things like this are all too common and often result in fatalities.

Cables are difficult for some cranes though. For example, in dense areas its impossible and it puts alot of stress on the cables when the crane rotates. If a cable snaps, the lash from it is potentially fatal if it hits someone. There is nothing you can really do with cranes other than give them solid bases and give it a solid shaft and not a shaft which can be assembled from different pieces.

i think cables would get in the way of the swing of the crane.
