One 38-year-old pedestrian has died after a construction crane collapsed in lower Manhattan at 8:24am, leaving at least 15 more injured, authorities said.
The crane, at 57 Worth Street between Church Street and West Broadway in Tribeca, was swinging a wrecking ball when it fell between 15 and 18 stories, clipping buildings as it fell on at a line of parked cars.
One victim, who was trapped in a vehicle, has been rescued, authorities say. At least two are seriously injured,and three have been taken to Bellevue Hospital Center.
It is unclear why the crane fell, but the incident occurred during snowy and windy conditions.
