Two Dead in Crane Collapse at NY Condominium Construction Site

 A crane's collapse at a condominium construction site in Manhattan's Upper East Side this morning has caused two deaths, both victims being construction workers on the project, city newspapers are reporting.

The incident occurred at First Avenue and 91st Street at approximately 8:15 local time. Emergency services personnel immediately flooded the scene to search through the rubble. As with a March collapse of a tower crane in the city, this one struck and damaged nearby buildings when it fell. The March collapse spurred the resignation of the city's buildings commissioner a few weeks later.

Today's collapse caused disruptions in the area, as First Avenue was reported closed between 86th Street and 94th Street. with 94th Street closed between 2nd Avenue and York Avenue. Several bus line services also were diverted.
