  • The collapse took place about 3:40 p.m. at a construction site at 31-25 28th Rd. near 33rd St. in Astoria officials said

First responders received the 911 call about the incident at 31-25 28th Rd. roughly 3:40 p.m., officials said.

Three construction workers were injured Tuesday afternoon after a crane's load fell at a work site in Queens. One of them remains trapped. They said a load of materials that had been placed on the roof for renovation fell through the roof - possibly all the way to the basement. He was removed around 5:30 p.m. and rushed to a nearby ambulance in what was described as serious condition.

Some of the firefighters were tending to the victims as others worked to clear the debris that had fallen into the basement of the building, according to WNBC.
