    Water Main Break On 5th Ave.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Photographer Chiu Ng captured the scene as workers worked to repair a water main break on 5th Avenue in Manhattan on Wednesday afternoon. “I was surprised by the enormity of the crater produced,” Ng said. “It was also shocking to see 5th Avenue so utterly transformed into a scene of destruction. It looked like a movie.” To make things worse, the water main flooded Union Square and caused delays on some train lines, he said.
