In Midtown Manhattan, a Crane Collapses


Updated | A crane toppled into a high-rise building in midtown Manhattan on Sunday morning, reports The New York Post. At around 11 a.m., the crane—which was lifting an A/C unit weighing 4 tons—crashed into the building at 38th Street and Madison Avenue.

The crane rammed into the 30th story of the building, according to Gothamist, causing a slew of debris to fall down onto the street. Surrounding areas were closed off until authorities secured the scene.
