Queens Crane Collapse Hurts 7 Near Iconic Pepsi Sign

Via @UnSweeTee.

A towering construction crane collapsed this afternoon at 46th Avenue and Center Boulevard in Long Island City, Queens — directly behind the iconic Pepsi-Cola sign on the East River — injuring at least seven people.

CBS reports that three of the injuries are “serious”:

Local news TV station NY1 cut into Governor’s Cuomo’s state-of-the-state address with a breaking-news update about the collapse.

There were early reports of construction workers “trapped” in the debris, but all workers have been accounted for.
