70-foot crane collapses in Gerritsen Inlet

BROOKLYN - A 70-foot crane collapsed today on a barge floating in the Gerritsen Inlet.

Workers with Sea Tow New York, which was called to help out after the crane collapsed, say the barge belongs to a company called Lomma Construction, whose workers were apparently lifting a short section of pipe when the crane suddenly fell sideways.

FDNY Marine Units and the Coast Guard were also called to respond.
