Crane on the move

Remember the crane
that blew over in the storm on Monday?
Apparently it still works, and they're solving the problem by turning it, so that the dangling part is touching the building.
Presumably from there, they can dismantle it safely, and cart away the broken bits down through the building itself.
It's kind of brilliant. They might do some damage to the building, but the ground below remains safe, and the problem may be solved quickly.
Update: Here's a close-up
of the crane. Note the net under the crane bits.
Update #2: Here's a Bloomberg article
that explains the plan.
