  • 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.
  • A picture named crane.jpg
  • 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.
