A video shows the moment a tower crane working in Manhattan collapsed striking a building opposite.
Six people, including four civilians and two firefighters, suffered minor injuries in a crane collapse Wednesday morning in Manhattan.
One of the firefighters had chest pains and was transported to an area hospital, but all injuries are non-life threatening, New York Fire Department Deputy Commissioner Joseph W. Pfeifer said at a news conference. Pfeifer added that some of the civilian injuries were to construction workers.
The incident occurred at a vacant construction site on 10th Avenue and 41st Street, where firefighters responded to a five-alarm fire before the boom of the crane collapsed, striking a building across the street, city officials said.
