Several injured in scaffolding collapse

Several injured in scaffolding collapse

The scaffolding collapsed at Broadway and Prince Street, in the heart of SoHo. The area was clogged with shoppers and tourists and fire officials say "we're extremely lucky" there were no more injuries.

First responders were on the scene quickly, Deputy Chief Chris Boyle of the FDNY told the New York Daily News.

Video taken just before noon and posted on Twitter shows people scrambling to remove piles of boards and metal sheets after strong winds toppled the structure onto the sidewalk.

A wind advisory was in effect for all of New York City on Sunday until 6 p.m., with a warning of possibly risky gusts up to 50 miles per hour. The Daily News reported two of the injured were in serious but stable condition after being taken to the hospital; three others suffered only minor injuries.

Units with the city's police and fire department remained on the scene early Sunday afternoon as the investigation and cleanup continued.

Southbound traffic was closed at Prince Street and northbound N, Q, R, and E trains were bypassing the Prince Street station as a result of the collapse.
