You may have heard the story of the crane that collapsed in Manhattan — which killed one and injured three last Friday — but you can’t really comprehend how terrifying a 565-foot steel arm falling from the sky is until you see it for yourself.
A man on the 30th floor of a nearby building caught the whole collapse on video. From the ominous screams of the bending metal to the amazing force of the fall, this is one of the most frightening construction accidents in recent memory.
As CNN reports, the crane was locked into a secure position while workers lowered it, but strong winds caused it to come crashing to the ground. Unfortunately, a man named David Wichs was sitting in his parked vehicle when it fell, making him the only casualty.
