At the NYC site of tower 4, a 35-foot steel column fell off a crane this morning at the World Trade Center and crushed a vehicle on the site. This accident has caused a partial shutdown of construction.

This occurred around 10 this morning with only one minor injury reported. A fortunate construction worker slipped and fell while running near the fallen steel. Luckily, this 16-acre site was cordoned off while crews continue rebuild. The only area open to the public is the memorial, which was unveiled in September.
