Default Man killed by falling granite slab weapon.


"Worker was unloading truck in Hanover when slab fell, crushing him".

Imagine if a cyclist had been underneath the slab?

These slab weapons should be banned. A slab can kill a cyclist, but a
cyclist can't kill a slab.

As usual the vulnerable victim gets the blame & the slab gets off with a
slap on the slab wrist.

April 2010. Wow, that's topical. Is that why you posted it on a
