    Long Island City 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. UN worker expatnyc described a chaotic scene: 'There was a horrific noise. After the crane collapsed people were screaming and running around. I saw two stretchers put in ambulances, but the ambulances did not leave the scene for a long time.'

    The company that owned the crane also owned a crane that collapsed in 2008 on Manhattan's Upper East Side, killing two construction workers.
