Crane collapse at Hoboken dry dock
At about 1:20pm, it was reported that a crane collapsed at the Union Dry Dock & Repair facility on Sinatra Drive.
One person fell in the water, but no serious injuries were reported. The worker was taken to HUMC for observation. There was also concern that the crane (engine still running) may have leaked some kind of fuel in the water, in addition to the piles of debris.
Regardless, the whole gang is involved. New York Harbor Patrol, Hoboken Marine One, Hoboken Fire, Hoboken Police, three ambulances, and building inspector are now on the scene.
I wonder if they can deem the facility “unsafe” to pave way for more high-rise condos!?
