Write a comment

A large construction crane has apparently been blown over by high winds, collapsing into a nearby apartment building and parking deck.  Dallas officials report at least one person confirmed as killed at this time.

The crane fell onto the Elan City Lights apartment building, located at 2627 Live Oak St.

One woman was pronounced dead following the collapse, and as least six others were taken to Baylor and Parkland hospitals. Two remain in critical condition. Another person was treated and has already been released.

Search and rescue efforts are underway at the apartment building. Crews are said to be focused on the east side of the building, which is the same area where the deceased person was found.

Video below from inside the scene shows the extent of the catastrophe:
