Coast Guard responds to crane collapse

BOSTON – The Coast Guard and local police are responding to the site where a crane collapsed today in Quincy, Mass.

The Coast Guard is maintaining a safety zone between the Fore River Bridge and the Braintree terminal to direct boating traffic away from the area.

Coast Guard Sector Boston launched a 41-foot boat crew from Station Point Allerton after the Quincy Police Department notified the sector that the crane had collapsed on land at about 1 p.m.

“Although the accident does not affect the waterway, we want to manage onlookers and the general boating public near the site,” said Lt. Tony Cao, the command duty officer at Sector Boston.
