Wow:Crane collapse in NYC kills 4, traps others
What a day

<snip>
NEW YORK - A crane mounted to the side of a skyscraper under construction toppled with a roar Saturday, smashing into a block of apartment buildings, killing at least four people and setting off a scramble for survivors in the rubble.

The collapsing crane demolished parts of several buildings on Manhattan's East Side, appeared to have pulverized one small, brick apartment building, and sent up a huge dust cloud over the neighborhood.

Fire Department officials told NBC News that at least four people were dead and several others were taken to hospitals. An intensive, but delicate rescue operation was under way to free anyone still trapped in the rubble.

John PlaGreco, who owns Fu Bar in the crushed building, said he feared one of his employees was dead in the rubble.

M$M is not interested in covering anything that affects anyone but the rich or the horse race. They'll make exceptions for a good murder, a missing blond or a nice scandal.
