This catastrophe was due to poor decision making. The worker cut too large of a log for the crane to handle in order to try and shave time off the job.

There's nothing "freak" about this incident. 100% incompetence on the part of the tree-trimmer.

This happens quite often, and as Bob already stated is due to the trimmer trying to save time by cutting larger sections of tree. Or, if not intentional, then it's the result of inexperience.
