The New York City Fire Department says a crane collapse early Friday in Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood killed at least one person and seriously injured two others.
Fire officials tweeted that they are responding to the scene of the crane collapse, which happened at the intersection of Worth Street and West Broadway.
Photos posted by the FDNY on Twitter show the red crane stretching down the street with its vehicle crushed and flipped over.
The FDNY also posted a photo of a crushed car next to the crane. The Associated Press reports that "the crane landed across several parked cars, smashing their roofs."
A witness told the wire service that "he saw onlookers trying to help a person who was trapped in a car."
