(NEW YORK) — New footage from the deadly crane collapse in downtown Manhattan Friday morning shows how bystanders desperately tried to rescue a person trapped in one of the cars that was struck.
The video appears to show a person climbing on the car’s roof and smashing the windshield so the trapped driver could escape.
One person died as a result of the crash, and three others were injured, two of whom suffered serious lacerations to the head.
City officials have determined that the crane was being moved as a precaution because of 25 mile per hour winds.
