Two construction workers were killed and four others injured Tuesday when a crane collapsed at a downtown high-rise condominium site and fell on top of an unoccupied home that the contractor used as an office, officials said.
Miami fire spokesman Ignatius Carroll said one other person was treated at the scene and another was possibly trapped under rubble.
He said the crane was not stable, so the rescue efforts were hampered. He said he was unsure how the crane fell.
A 210-foot construction crane collapsed Thursday evening in downtown Bellevue, striking several buildings and killing a man who lived in an apartment that was hit by the crane.
Bellevue Fire Department Lt. Bruce Kroon said the man's body was found in a fourth floor apartment of the Pinnacle Bell Center Building, which was hit by the falling crane. It appears no other people in the building were injured. A Microsoft Corp. spokesman identified the victim as Matthew Ammon, a 31-year-old intellectual property attorney with the company.
The crane was being operated at the time it fell, and the operator "rode the crane down" nearly 200 feet. He was hurt but reportedly was going to be OK, police spokesman Greg Grannis said.
