New York City’s fire department says one person is dead and two others are seriously injured following a crane collapse in Lower Manhattan.

The accident was reported around 8:25 a.m. ET Friday in the Tribeca neighbourhood. The crane landed across several parked cars, smashing their roofs.

The collapsed metal lattice landed across an intersection and stretched much of a block.

A witness who works nearby said he saw onlookers trying to help a person who was trapped in a car. Robert Harold said he also saw a person lying motionless in the street.
