Two Crane Mishaps in Trying to Recover the Same Submerged Car Unproven! & Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:
The eRumor includes a series of pictures surrounding a car that appears to have gone off a dock into the water.
At first, a crane tried to pull the car from the water and onto the dock but appears to have toppled into the water too.
Then a second crane successfully salvages the car but appears to topple over while trying to pull the previous crane out of the drink.
 
The Truth:
These pictures are on several sites on the Internet.
The consensus seems to be that this happened in Ireland, although we have not confirmed that.
The final picture that shows the second crane overturned appears to be a hoax.
There are several indications:
…The shadow of the mirror over the windshield of the crane is no different in the tilted position than in the upright position.
…The background of the picture of the tilted second crane is the same as one of the pictures of the first crane (note the people standing on the right side of the picture).
