Queens Crane Collapse Claims 2 Lives

A crane collapse at a construction site in Queens, New York has claimed the lives of 2 construction workers after they were crushed by a beam they were hoisting.

The men were lifting the I-beam with a crane when it snagged on part of the structure of the building, according to reports.

The cable holding the beam gave way and it came crashing down into the crane cab and fell onto the ground.

Unfortunately the cab operator and the worker holding the tether line were pronounced dead on arrival at hospital. Both workers were in their forties. The incident is under investigation.
