Crane driver battle flames to save people below

THE machinery driver who stopped a burning crane from crashing into a busy Sydney street last month has been awarded for his bravery.

Glenn May battled flames in the cabin of a crane to change its direction so it fell on a UTS building rather than the hundreds of people below on November 27.

He was honoured with the John Owens bravery award at Sydney's Town Hall on Friday.

His co-workers, Nuno Nunes and union delegate Gordon Cameron, were also recognised for their efforts in diverting the crane and potentially saving many lives.
