Crane Collapse in Center City Philadelphia

Medics have transported two people from the scene, including a 70-year-old woman who was hit by the crane when it came down. She was taken to Hahnemann University Hospital with stable vital signs.
A 40-year-old man, who was on the crane when it collapsed, was also taken to Hahnemann.
