Crane topples onto roof at Pembroke Pines construction site

Worker treated, released from hospital after injuring ankle

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. - A worker was injured Wednesday when a crane toppled over at a construction site in Pembroke Pines.

Sky 10 was above the site off Pines Boulevard, where the crane fell onto the roof of an apartment building under construction.

Firefighters said the crane operator was loading roof trusses when the crane somehow tipped over. A man jumped out of the way and injured his ankle. He was treated at Memorial Regional Hospital and released.

Workers said the operator wasn't injured, and there was no damage to the crane or the construction site.

Signs on the fence surrounding the site indicate that Suffolk was the construction company.
