Onlooker Killed When Crane Collapses in Oklahoma… a trend?

Crane Accident 11
A Photo of The Houston Crane Incident

An article published by the associated press recently cited that an elderly couple was watching a steeple being placed on top of a church when the crane fell. An 80 year old man died while a 78 year old woman was transported to the hospital. Referencing the recent incidents in Las Vegas, New York, and Houston, I have a question.

Is the recent spike in crane accidents normal variation in incidents or a true spike in crane failures? What do you think?
