    Another crane collapse in NYC - Kills at least 1

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080530/...crane_collapse
    One body was brought out of the rubble at East 91st Street and First Avenue, placed on a gurney and covered in a white sheet. A construction worker knelt over the stretcher, gently stroking the sheet.
    It wasn't immediately clear whether there were additional fatalities.

    What a mess! I'm wondering about the occupants of the building. Were any of them hurt?
