Crane falls on Brisbane construction site

THE man who died after an elevated work platform toppled at Newstead has been remembered as a devoted family man and widely respected photographer, as his son recovers from surgery.

Chris Powell, 41, and his son Brendan, 17, were in the bucket of the machine taking photographs of the vacant site last night when it collapsed.

Relatives this afternoon paid tribute to the “big-hearted” family man.

They said son Brendan had undergone “a lot of operations all day today” at Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital but was expected to make a good recovery.
