How to avoid being crushed by a construction crane

In February, a crane fell on a woman in the New York City neighborhood of Williamsburg, injuring her in the neck and leaving her in a medically induced coma.

The New York Times reports that the woman, identified as Jane Doe, had just returned from a day at a job in construction when the crane struck her.

According to a police report, the woman suffered a head injury and a concussion and was transported to a local hospital.

According a local NBC affiliate, the New Jersey Department of Transportation is investigating the incident and is recommending that any construction workers in the area wear head-mounted cameras.
