:O Sad as it may be, I had to watch that video twice to see the crane that fell. 2 incidents like this is definitely not a good start...let's hope nothing else major happens.

At least it wasn't one of the tower cranes. This one is looking like another 1 Bryant Park.

I hear that the budget for the project includes the liabilities for 8 deaths.

I never did see it collapse. Video moving too fast for these old eyes.

My eyes must be old too, because I didn't see any collapse either.

You don't really see it collapse, it's up in one frame and down in the next.

No no dmoor. The cranes are not out of the frame. I suspect that was just an oddity of a night. The crane lights are always on, I'm not sure why they weren't then.

They're on right now.

All four tower cranes are now in operation. Forms for the first floor slab are now coming together. Looks like they are prepping the rest of the site around the tower for brick & mortar construction.
