During a recent subway line extension project, a
crane collapsed on top of construction laborers working below. One of the workers
was killed and four others were injured in the accident. Allegedly, the
arm of the crane snapped, causing it to crash to the ground. A complicated
rescue operation was staged by the fire department around the unstable
construction scene. Other workers at the site looked on in horrified disbelief,
while witnesses described the unbelievable sight and enormous sound of
the collapse. Work on the site has been halted indefinitely while officials
investigate the cause of the accident.
Construction site accidents are an unfortunate reality for thousands of U.S. construction workers
each year. Over 1,000 of those hurt in a construction accident each year
will be injured so catastrophically that they die from their injuries.
