NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A crane cable snapped sending a 30-tons of steel crashing about 40 stories into a closed-off area at the World Trade Center construction site.

The Fire Department says some of the beams fell on an unoccupied flat-bed truck which was delivering supplies to the site.

“The truck was smashed,” one witness told 1010 WINS’ Stan Brooks.

Pablo Guzman reports one construction worker nearby suffered minor scrapes and bruises.

He was looked at by emergency responders at the scene but was not taken to the hospital.

The incident took place at about 10 a.m. near Church and Cortlandt Street at Four World Trade Center.

It is unclear how high the load had been lifted before it dropped.
