Crane collapse kills at least 110, injures hundreds more in Muslim holy city of Mecca

A massive crane crashed into the Grand Mosque in Muslim holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, filled with worshipers, killing at least 110 and injuring more than 240 others.

Saudi authorities have blamed the collapse on strong winds and heavy rains which had plagued the region.

An undisclosed number of worshipers were hurt in the stampede that followed the crash.

The Grand Mosque, locally known as the “Masjid al-Haram,” which surrounds Islam’s holiest structure, the Kaaba, is the largest mosque in the world.

Explosions, Stampedes, Protests, Diastase Epidemics and Failures of Crowd Control

In recent years, thousands of pilgrims have been killed and many more injured in dozens of evitable incidents during the Hajj, the annual Muslim pilgrimage to the city of Mecca, when about 3 million people visit the city.

The most recent incidents include

  • Deadly stampedes in 1990, 1994, 1998, 2001, 2003, 2004 and 2006.
  • Explosions and fires in 1975, 1997, and 2007.
  • Protest and Violence in 1987 1nd 1989.
  • Spread of epidemics (dates and casualty toll unknown/ undisclosed)
  • Collapsing Infrastructure and Road Deaths.

The Saudi authorities have proven time and time again that they are too incompetent to prevent otherwise avoidable disasters that have led to so many thousands of deaths and injuries.
