New York City’s fire department says one person is dead and two others are seriously injured following a crane collapse in Lower Manhattan.
The accident was reported Friday morning in the Tribeca neighbourhood. The crane landed across several parked cars, smashing their roofs.
The collapsed crane landed across an intersection and stretched much of a block.
A witness who works nearby says he saw onlookers trying to help a person who was trapped in a car. Robert Harold says he also saw a person lying motionless in the street.
