    2 Workers Killed In Miami Crane Collapse, 5 Construction Workers Also Injured As Crane Topples At High-Rise Condominium Site - AP, CBS News
    A 20-foot-long chunk of construction crane plummeted 30 floors at the site of a high-rise condominium Tuesday, killing two workers and smashing into a home that the contractor used for storage, police said.

    Five other workers were injured, one critically, at the site of the 40-plus-story luxury condo tower on Biscayne Bay.

    The part that fell was a section workers had been raising to extend the equipment's reach, Miami fire spokesman Ignatius Carroll said. The crane's main vertical section was intact.
