[ censored ] , fallly, [ censored ] , [ censored ] , [ censored ] holy -- it broke! holy [ censored ] ! >> reporter: the operator loves his battle to control the crane from here. that's the cab he was sitting in when the boom got away from him. it crashed to the ground with enough force to flip the cab on its roof. the massive metal treads pointing to the sky. >> it's like bombs going off. >> reporter: on worth street they saw construction workers running and then the crane clipped the building at 57 worth. the metal weight of the end of the cable ended up in an office and tons of metal fell. a crushed car with a trapped driver in the middle of the street. a whole row of parked cars crumbled on the south side of the block.
5:03 pm

5:04 pm
live along the sidewalk at west broadway and worth. there's part of the crane as it lays all along this stretch as kristine mentioned at the top. experts tell me the winds that were gusting to 30 miles an hour were not strong enough to topple the crane on its own but they also say these cranes are most stable when holding a load and this as you saw in the video was not. live in tribeca, lou young, cbs 2 news. >> incredible. thank you. as we mentioned, this crime came down in seconds. we want to take a look at the full scope of that cell phone video of the collapse. here it is. [ yelling and cursing ] >> oh, it broke! [ more yelling and cursing ] >> reporter: really terrifying moments there. that intersection that you
5:05 pm
block away from. the damage, the fear, can you imagine at that very moment? it has left a mass of destruction here. to get an idea of the scale, i want to give you a look here at the fallen lattice. you can see the metal mess stretches more than an entire city block. actually, two. it's basically almost two football fields to give you a visual of that. and tonight, the entire area around the scene is closed off. police have blocked worth street from canal to hudson and also west broadway from worth to canal. investigators surveying the damage have a lot of ground to cover. this picture was shot a block away and it shows just how widespread the damage is to some of the rooftops and the buildings that surround. the fall sent bricks and debris crashing on nearby roofs and raining down on to the street below. shock and horror, no surprise
5:06 pm
we spoke with, who saw all of this happen. steve langford has more. >> reporter: the building boom in this city a sign of great progress and prosperity but alarm about these giant cranes reinforcing yet again fears that they just aren't safe. the terrifying sight of this 565-foot-tall crane plunging to earth this morning, something traumatized witnesses may never forget. you heard the boom. >> then you run to the windows and then i see a crane falling on the street. >> we all ran to help. all of us tried to run to help and then we saw a man trapped but they wouldn't let us go no farther. >> reporter: this disaster some local residents say is just what they feared when they first saw the colossus go up. >> it looks like something out of a movie set. >> reporter: brian o'rourke and his wife live on worth street. the crane was right in front of their building. >> she called me and said, it fell!
5:07 pm
>> we knew something was going to happen. we asked the operator galasso construction, rigging, what are the odds of this crane collapsing the day it was going up? they said you have a better chance of winning the powerball lottery. >> reporter: the catastrophic collapse shook local residents physically and figuratively. bruce lives across the street. >> it was the same feeling physically of shaking as 9/11 only far, far worse. i thought our building was going to collapse. >> reporter: the giant crane collapsed almost straight down worth street with deadly consequences although perhaps not as bad as if it crashed in another direction. >> if this crane fell 90 degrees the other way, 50, 60 people would have been killed. >> reporter: the fact that this crane was inspected just yesterday by the department of buildings is something that may not necessarily reassure new yorkers. live in tribeca, steve
5:08 pm
steve, thank you. so just another visual here right behind me. plenty of action. the crane still laying right down worth street. and carlos my photographer, if you could just pan up here, this is a very active construction site. we're going to show you some of the other cranes on some of the other buildings up top. carlos is going to pan that pictured right up top. you can see this is a very active area. there's a lot of construction here. as a result of today's incident, there were orders to secure all cranes here in the city. investigation is certainly a big part of this. what went wrong, how did it happen, how can we prevent another tragedy like this? i'm going to send it back to maurice in the studio. >> thank you kristine. so graphic the images coming from downtown today. among the key questions in the investigation, how could something have gone so terribly wrong when the crane had just passed an inspection? cbs 2's dick brennan here with
5:09 pm
>> reporter: lots of questions. the crane was being taken down because of specific requirements about wind speed. but the question, should it have come down earlier? the collapse happened as workers were trying to secure the crane by lowering the boom. >> no work was done this morning upon the arrival, the crews seeing that the wind speeds were around 20 miles per hour, and that their manufacturer requirement was when it got to 25 to bring it down, they didn't even start work. they just started the immediate securing of the crane. >> reporter: the city had just inspected it yesterday because an extension was being added. the crane had been put up january 30th to replace generators and air- conditioning equipment on the roof of 60 hudson street, a building nearly 40 stories high. >> we have full permits for the crane itself. we're further investigating what might have been required for the equipment that was being done, was being installed on the roof. >> reporter: but with a snowstorm predicted, should the crane have been secured earlier than this morning? one forensic engineer spoke to
5:10 pm
safety and weather. >> the problem is, is that if you know there's going to be inclement weather, you know, you definitely should have done it prior. by not doing it prior, um, you know, obviously put construction crew, innocent bystanders and as well as the crane operator in danger. >> reporter: the crane operator is 56 years old and from long island. he tested it zero on the breathalyzer. but there is a history of dwi arrests all from the '80s. while the crane is owned by galasso trucking and rigging. >> no recent negative activity. so at this point, we believe that they have been doing their work effectively but again, there will be a full investigation of everything that happened here. >> reporter: now, we reached out both to bay crane and galasso trucking and rigging but they have not gotten back to us. >> long way to go here, dick. >> indeed. >> thanks so much. we have much more for you on the deadly crane collapse

5:34 pm
almost as if the crane operator may have been trying to maneuver it as much as he could to avoid those buildings. we don't know if that's fact. however, we do know that we were all very fortunate that that crane did end up in the middle of a very narrow, narrow street. >> got that right. >> maybe it was fate. i have no idea. but it really is an incredible sight to see. >> so striking. very good reporting tonight, kristine. thank you very much. we'll see you at the top of the hour, i believe, at 6:00. let's talk about super bowl 50. it's less than 50 hours away. i beg your pardon. i'm ahead of myself. new information in a terrifying subway attack of a woman who got stuck by a needle. police releasing this video of a man they are looking for. a woman who does not want to be identified says the suspect bumped into her wednesday night at the 49th street and seventh avenue station. the 37-year-old woman felt sharp pain in her arm later and noticed a puncture wounds.
