What's Wrong With This Overhead Crane Application?

Thanks Tim Milsap for providing the correct answer to our last post. This is arch beam or castellated beam which has been around for almost 50 years. It should either be replaced or watched and inspected regularily. Here is some more information that we have provided on our website concerning these types of beams

This next picture comes from our internal dealer training slides. Can you tell me what is wrong with the crane application in this picture?
