The Crane Collapse

These are my snapshots of the crane collapse in Manhattan's East Side, one day later. There were about six square blocks around 50th Street and 2nd Avenue closed to traffic and rescuers were still loooking for survivors when I took these photos on Sunday afternoon. At that point, four were confirmed dead. When the searching was over the death total was at seven.

The building that the crane was attached to can be seen in the upper left corner in the photo above. What was left of the crane is leaning on the 19-story brick apartment building across the street. The real damage was to the buildings that the rest of the crane fell on, including a townhouse that was completely smushed.
