Crane Collapses In New York City

NEW YORK - A construction crane collapsed Friday in New York City, smashing into a 23-story apartment building and crashing onto the street below, which left at least one person dead.

It wasn't clear whether there were additional fatalities. The Fire Department said that they have pulled people out of the wreckage at East 91st Street and First Avenue and their conditions were not known.

The New York crane accident happened 2 1/2 months after a crane collapsed, killing seven people a few miles away from the current crane accident.

In that March 15 accident, contractors building a 46-story condominium near the United Nations were trying to lengthen the crane when a steel support broke. The crane demolished a four-story town house and damaged several other buildings.

A city inspector resigned after his arrest on charges of falsifying business records and offering a false instrument for filing.

In April, the city's buildings commissioner resigned, under fire over a rising number of deadly construction accidents.
