Earlier this morning, a 20-story crane collapsed in Lower Manhattan. The massive crane toppled over and fell on a row of parker cars in Tribeca, killing one and injuring 15. The man who was killed was 38-year-old David Wichs. “He was a wonderful, wonderful person. He was the best, the absolute best, and that’s what makes this tragedy that much greater,” his rabbi told New York Daily News. A crew was working with the crane when it started tumbling out of control due to 20-mile-per-hour winds. They ceased work and were lowering the crane to secure it when it began to plummet to the ground.
