A crane on a barge in a canal has collapsed onto an apartment complex in North Miami Beach.

The crane slipped off the barge — which began sinking — and struck the building on 3725 Northeast 169 St. late Sunday night, according to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue.

The crane is still in the water, as of Monday morning, and appears to have damaged a section of the building’s roof.

The building remains partially evacuated, according to NBC6.

There were no reported injuries.

City Center tower crane operator Ed Dangler speaks about his work nearly 300 feet above downtown Lexington, Kentucky.
