He fell FOUR feet but the investigation "could take several months to complete".
Why would it take that long? A couple of hours at most I would think and that would include writing the report and getting it signed off.

As with all building sites every accident has to be investigated. I know the crane operator, the accident was very much more serious than what was reported, the victim is very lucky to be alive.
