Six injured in New York crane accident
On Wednesday morning, a crane reportedly caught fire and fell on a skyscraper in New York City while carrying 16 tons of concrete.

According to the New York Post, the accident, unfortunately, injured six people, including two firefighters.

The video shows that the crane cab fell onto the skyscraper before collapsing to the ground.

Fortunately, it was only 7:30 a.m. when the accident happened, so the street wasn’t as busy as it was in the middle of the day.

Mayor Eric Adams visited the scene to assess the situation and thank the first responders.

According to the New York Post, the crane bore on its side the name of Lomma Crane, a company owned by James F. Lomma, who was acquitted of manslaughter and guilty on three other counts in connection with the fatal collapse of a crane on the Upper East Side in 2008.
