NYC Construction Shed Collapses, Injures 4

November 1, 2013

By The Associated Press

Authorities say a construction shed apparently collapsed in New York City, injuring four people, and that high winds may have been a factor.

The Fire Department says three people were taken to a hospital Friday morning. Their conditions were not immediately known. A firefighter was also taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

CBS New York says some lanes of traffic were closed nearby in midtown Manhattan.

The Department of Buildings issued a warning to property owners Friday to secure construction sites and buildings as high winds whip through the area.
