The crane that collapsed at One57 was not tied down, Donald Trump is alleging. Trump told CNBC that he could see the crane from his window and it was moving violently in the wind before it collapsed. Trump is not involved with the One57 project.

“I know lots about cranes and lots about building, and I am looking at that crane right now,” Trump said. “I have a window that’s just about even with that crane and I was watching it yesterday, and they didn’t tie it down.”

Trump went on to say that it all of the crane’s weight is on the back end, creating “a very precarious position.”

He also questioned Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s assurances that the crane had been inspected prior to the collapse. “Somebody made a big mistake. I don’t know if it was inspection, because frankly, you can’t inspect all of the things you have to expect in one or two hours.” [CNBC] —Christopher Cameron
