NEW YORK (AP) - New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the
construction crane collapse on the Upper East Side is
"unacceptable."
He says seven buildings have been evacuated as a precaution
following the collapse.
The accident has left one construction worker dead and two
others seriously injured.
At a news conference, Bloomberg said one of the casualties was
in the cab of the crane, and a second person was struck on the
street. He said he didn't know about the third person, and didn't
specify which one was killed.
Bloomberg says the city plans to investigate. Meantime, crews
are still digging through the wreckage.
This is the second deadly crane accident in less than three
months in New York.
