NEW YORK (AP) — The Fire Department of New York says seven people have been hurt, three of them seriously, when a crane collapsed at a construction site in the city's Queens borough.

The fire department got the call shortly before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Long Island City neighborhood.

The crane was visible along the East River behind a big neon "Pepsi Cola" sign, a local landmark.

The three people who were seriously injured are in stable condition.
