Three people got lucky after an 80-ton crane fell over on Friday afternoon in Nirimba on the Sunshine Coast.
Sylvia Liewerenz burst into tears when she talked about how close she was to losing her husband Marco when a crane crashed through her roof.
Police say they will stay at the coastal crane accident site overnight as a crane operator finds alternative accommodation for residents of damaged homes.
