Williamsburg Crane Goes Tippy: The Photos

Here's that crane that fell over on Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg this morning, making for a very interesting construction visual. Props to the special field correspondent who sent them in.

UDPATE: A reader on the scene emails to say, "The crane was HUGE, probably 200ft and lifting something too heavy. The crane then began to tip and would have completely crushed a man if a fence hadn't broke the crane's fall. Two words: holy crap. THEN, I get on the train and the person standing next to me PASSES OUT and my girlfriend and a few other pepole dragged him out of the train and put him into a cab. It was seriously a messed up morning."
