Dallas crane collapse & aftermath - 1 dead, six injured

A woman has died and at least six people were injured when a crane collapsed on to an apartment building in Dallas amid severe thunderstorms early on Sunday afternoon.
Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans told reporters first responders searching the Elan City Lights building found a woman inside an apartment who was later pronounced dead.
Two people were taken to hospital in critical condition and three in non-critical but serious condition, Evans said. One person sustained a minor injury and was discharged.

Video shot by cellphone and posted to Twitter showed severe damage to a parking garage, cars piled on top of each other between collapsed floors, and firefighters escorting a stretcher out of the apartments building, in which a section of the top three floors had collapsed.

The crane fell as strong winds, heavy rain and hail battered parts of north Texas. The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area, warning of heavy rain, damaging gusts and large hail.
