Massive crane hanging from high rise in Midtown Manhattan as Sandy slams East Coast

A massive crane has partially collapsed at 57th Street and 7th Avenue near Carnegie Hall. Authorities are concerned that it may now plummet to the street, according to Eyewitness News in New York City.

“The incident began around 2:30 p.m. No reports of injuries at this time. Construction in New York has been suspended for the storm so it is unclear if anyone would have been on the job site. Officials say there is not much they can do about the crane as it dangles from the 65-story building. They are keeping people far away from the area just in case the crane plunges to the ground,” Eyewitness News is reporting.
