Cement Mixer Through A Parking Deck

These pictures are from an incident on September 13, 2010.  A cement mixer punched through a parking deck.  The Toms River TRT responded to shore the deck prior to a crane lifting the mixer out.

This brings us to a company drill idea: What are your capabilities?  Where are you getting this many shores?  Local or regional USAR teams?  How about cranes?  Rigging technicians?  Do you know how the drum of the mixer is held in place on the chassis?  Ready – go talk it out around the table with your crew after checkin out the pictures below.
