A crane cabling snapped causing a serious accident at the World Trade Center construction site at about 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 16, 2012. No casualties were immediately reported.

What appears to be steel high-beams fell at about 9:56 a.m. at the WTC site in downtown Manhattan. The steel high-beams, attached to a crane perched on top of a massive new tower building under construction at the site, plummeted to the ground when the crane cable snapped. The accident occurred near Cortlandt Street and Church Street, near the site of the 9/11 memorial.

Fire trucks, emergency response vehicles and several police cars arrived on the scene within minutes, and the site of the crane collapse was quickly roped off.
