Miller Park crane collapse: 15 years later

Milwaukee-- 15-years ago today, a crane collapse at Miller Park killed three ironworkers.  The contractor involved later had to pay millions for negligence, and a jury awarded the widows of the construction workers $100 million in damages.  

Construction of the new stadium was delayed by a full year.  A monument honoring the fallen ironworkers now stands outside Miller Park. 

CBS 58's Mike Strehlow sat down with the attorney who represented the victims' families, and talked about that fateful day and its impact of one of this community's worst construction disasters.
