There was another crane accident in New York City Wednesday. This time, it happened in Brooklyn.
The heavy crane was being moved when the ground gave way. The street caved in- under the weight of the crane, leaving a huge sinkhole behind.
Residents say when they look at the street, they see pot holes and can tell the street is less than a foot thick. Why then, they wonder, did someone think it was OK to leave the crane there for weeks, especially a crane loaded down with heavy steel plates?
