Construction crane collapses in downtown Miami

Construction crane collapses in downtown Miami”

One of two dozen construction cranes looming over the skyline in downtown Miami collapsed atop a high-rise in Irma's winds.

The crane, dangling about 450 feet in the air, is a concerning sight for residents living near a construction site off NE 5th Avenue and 30th Street in Miami. Hurricane Irma is wide enough to wreak havoc on the entirety of Florida, but it has directed its worst flooding in the state for the southwest, including Marco Island, Naples, Ft. That's the part of the crane which helps to balance it. The building was still in tact despite the crane's failure. We don't know what's going on. I do have friends. He also added that he couldn't afford a new place to stay with his wife and young child. "I have my dog and my two cats here", said Juliette, who's also evacuating.

According to the resident, the crane is on top of the PMG building that is now under construction.

There were no immediate reports of any damage or injuries.

Police and fire rescue were evacuating residents from the east side of a building at 479 Northeast 30th Street and the entire building at 505 Northeast 30th Street, officials said.
