Workers Right Tilted Crane That Hit NYC High-Rise

Sunday, 28 Mar 2010 07:57 AM

Mechanics and engineers in New York City have righted a crane that was poised precariously after it tilted and hit a 25-story building near Wall Street.

City fire officials say debris hit the ground and nearby buildings were evacuated Saturday after the crane hit a ledge near the top of the mixed-use building, but no injuries were reported.

The crane was in a plaza about half a block from the struck building. It was leaning diagonally across the street onto the building.

Crews have been working to move the crane away from the building and lower its neck. The crane was off the building as of 7 a.m. Sunday.

Police and buildings officials have said they didn't know what caused the crane to tilt.
