Ft Lauderdale, FL – Worker Dies, Three Hurt in Crane Collapse on New River

Ft Lauderdale, FL - Worker Dies, Three Hurt in Crane Collapse on New River

Fort Lauderdale, FL (April 4, 2024) – A construction worker died after a portion of a crane fell onto the Southeast 3rd Avenue bridge Thursday in downtown Fort Lauderdale, crushing a car and injuring three more people.

The incident happened around 4:30 p.m. on the bridge over the New River near Southeast 4th Street. Fort Lauderdale fire officials said in a news conference said a construction crew was in the process of stepping the crane by adding sections to a crane to make it taller when a platform fell from the building, along with pieces of the crane. No further details were released, but an investigation is still ongoing.

Our deepest condolences are with the deceased victim’s family. Our thoughts and best wishes for a full recovery are with the injured victims.
