NEW YORK (AP) - A crane that came off its base and crashed to the ground at a Manhattan construction site killed one worker and injured four others.
The worker who died was identified by police as 30-year-old Michael Simmermeyer of Burlington, N.J.
Officials say he was pronounced dead after the accident at the site of the No. 7 subway line extension. One other person was hospitalized in serious condition. Three other people were treated for minor injuries.
Jack Sullivan, deputy chief for the FDNY EMS, said it was possible one of the workers had been struck by the crane's boom. The crane operator and someone who worked with him were among those who were injured.
The cause of the collapse is under investigation.
