Crane collapse in lower Manhattan

    At least one dead after construction crane collapses in Manhattan

    A massive construction crane collapsed in downtown Manhattan on Friday morning, killing at least one person and seriously injuring two others, a spokesman for the New York City Fire Department said.

    There were preliminary reports of additional injuries by some local media, but Reuters could not immediately confirm the reports.

    A New York Police Department spokesman said the crane collapse was reported at 8:24 a.m. EST at the intersection of Worth Street and Broadway.

    Television images showed the crane lying on top of several crushed vehicles. It stretched out for more than one city block, according to the New York Department of Transportation.

    The two injured persons were transported to a hospital, the fire official said.
