St. Petersburg Police Department

A crane at a construction site in St. Petersburg this morning fell, nearly crushing at least one worker.

No one was injured in the incident, which happened at 1301 First Ave. N, where the new headquarters for the St. Petersburg Police Department is being built.

Workers scatter as the giant crane comes crashing down.

There was minimal damage to the construction site, police said.
