Crane collapse body count at 7

Rescue workers Monday pulled the bodies of two construction workers and a Florida woman from the wreckage of an East Side townhouse that was crushed by a falling crane.

The grim discoveries ended a two day search for survivors — and dashed the hopes of friends and relatives that somebody might be found alive.

Santino Gallone was the first to be found, two days after after the 300-foot crane collapsed and killed four of his co-workers.

Around 2 p.m., the body of construction worker Clifford Canzona, 45, of Long Island, was pulled from the wreckage.

A short time later, 28-year-old Odin Torres, who had flown to New York for a family party and to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, was found in the rubble.
