Crane atop NYC high-rise spins wildly in wind, drops debris on street

A crane on top of a high-rise apartment building in Manhattan jogged loose amid heavy wind Thursday evening, damaging the building and sending debris falling to the street below.

The crane, atop a Midtown building under construction on West 57th Street near Sixth Avenue, spun wildly in the wind and rain, video taken at the scene shows.

Fire officials said the FDNY was responding to building debris at 111 West 57th St.

The Department of Buildings warned property owners to secure construction equipment as the city is experiencing high winds and rain from Hurricane Zeta, which is lashing the Gulf Coast.
