A dozen people were treated for non-life threatening injuries when a crane partially collapsed from the top of a building that was under construction in Hell’s Kitchen on Wednesday, July 26.

The crane initially erupted into flames before falling 45 stories onto Tenth Avenue and 41st Street.

The building was deemed stable but as a precaution the Croatian Parish of Sts. Cyril and Methodius and St. Raphael, which is roughly a block away, was evacuated.
