The crane resting on the damaged building in Dallas.
One person died and at least six were injured after a crane collapsed into an apartment building in Dallas amid severe thunderstorms early on Sunday afternoon.
By 4 p.m., the storm had moved south of Dallas, leaving a mess of downed trees, some street flooding and other wind damage across the metropolitan area.
Severe thunderstorms capable of damaging winds, large hail and potential tornadoes were blowing Sunday through downtown Dallas and nearby Fort Worth, the National Weather Service said.
Another witness, Isaiah Allen, told the newspaper he was in his apartment when he head what he thought was a tremendous clap of thunder.
Part of the crane that fell on an apartment building killing one person in the USA state of Texas.
Allen told the paper he saw a bloodied woman trapped in her apartment on the second floor. She returned from a shopping trip to find her apartment, where she'd left her husband, Jay, to recover from a shoulder injury, crushed by the twisted metal.
"It felt like a year", Mrs Bosquez said.
Shocking images showed the crane had torn through the concrete as it fell into the building.
The company that owned the crane, Bigge Crane and Rigging Co., said in a statement it was mobilizing personnel to the site to find out more about the crane collapse and would cooperate with any investigation. It also damaged an adjacent parking garage and some of the vehicles in it. "There have been reports of multiple injuries, but no confirmed details at this time", Dallas Fire and Rescue said in a statement.
