Queens Construction Crane Collapse: UPDATE

Posted on Thursday, January 10th, 2013 at 10:32 am    

More details have emerged following yesterday’s tragic construction crane collapse in Long Island City, Queens. According to authorities, the accident occurred around 2:30 p.m. at the site of a new residential unit behind the iconic Pepsi-Cola sign in Queens.

While the exact cause of the accident has not yet been definitively determined, sources on the site claim that a cable may have snapped while moving a stack of wood on the scene, leading to the complete collapse of the crane.

Three construction workers were trapped underneath the crane following the collapse, and had to be extricated from underneath the equipment. The final injury count totaled seven workers, who were all transported to local hospitals with serious injuries.

Our thoughts go out to the families of the victims, and we wish all individuals involved a speedy recovery.
