A massive crane came crashing down in New York on Saturday, flattening residential buildings and killing at least four people.

Many residents were brought to nearby hospitals with severe injures and others were feared missing under the wreckage, according to local media. Those killed were reportedly construction workers.

"Construction is a dangerous thing," New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg told reporters, promising an investigation to discover the cause of the collapse.
