    LIC crane collapse


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     A crane collapse at a construction site in the Long Island City section of Queens, New York, Wednesday injured seven construction workers, according to city fire officials. jamieh9 told me, 'I was putting my 2 year old down for a nap when I heard what sounded like a wire snap then the first crash. I didn't think anything of it at first till the crash continued and I heard men yelling. I looked out the window to see people checking to see if everyone was alright. I saw people helping each other out the building and people talking to the crane operator. Shortly after that emergency crew was there. The fire department rushed through and around the collapsed structure to make sure that everyone was out.'
