Three men hug near where the bodies of two workers were recovered after they died Friday morning when their crane-hoisted lift basket fell 80 feet at a bridge construction site on Putah Creek in Winters. The basket landed on timbers covering a 30-foot hole dug for footings for the new span. The 10-worker crew included the father of one of the men killed, said Richard Disney, president of Burlingame-based Disney Construction, which was building the bridge.
