    I don't know what happened but, it looks like it was toenailed at the top. Not the best way to do it. Notched or a bracket would be better.
    What actually did that? Looks like some sort of upheaval for sure.

    I'd send OSHA the bill for making ROPS mandatory now... 99% of the time the ROPS are going to CAUSE accidents rather than prevent them. You have proof of that, and dang expensive proof at that...

    I hope everything there was able to set back down into place. I bet that was a bit more than a one man job getting that back right again huh?

    ROPS are just completely worthless. I'd unbolt that thing and then cut it into 6 inch pieces just to vent some frustration!
