1 killed after crane collapses during storm
A construction crane buffeted by high winds during a storm collapsed on a Dallas apartment building Sunday, killing one woman in the building and injuring five people, two of them critically, a fire official said.
Crews searching the Elan City Lights building found the body of a woman inside after the crane collapsed, ripping a large gash into the side of the structure, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said during a news briefing.
First responders searched every apartment they could reach and found no other victims, Evans said.
Of those injured, two were in critical condition, two had suffered serious injuries, and one had minor injuries and was discharged from a hospital, Evans said.
The crane fell after the National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area until 7 p.m. Sunday, warning of heavy rain, damaging gusts and large hail.
