A section of construction crane plummeted 30 floors at the site of a high-rise condominium, killing two workers and smashing into a home that the contractor used for storage, police said.
Five other workers were injured, one critically, at the site of the 40-plus-story luxury condo tower on Biscayne Bay just days after a similar accident in New York killed seven people.
The part that fell was a 20-foot (6-meter) section workers had been raising to extend the equipment's reach, Miami fire spokesman Ignatius Carroll said. The crane's main vertical section was intact.
The section smashed through the Spanish-tiled roof of the two-story home, which police spokesman Delrish Moss said had been used in the 1998 comedy film "There's Something About Mary."
