One person has been killed and six others taken to hospital after a crane fell onto an apartment complex in the southern US city of Dallas.
The construction crane was brought down during a powerful thunderstorm which hit Texas on Sunday.
Authorities say it broke apart and cut through five floors of the complex, which was opposite a building site.
The tower’s parking garage was also damaged, and search and rescue efforts are still ongoing.
Local media reports said the person who died was a woman. Of those in hospital, two are in critical condition, said fire and rescue services spokesperson Jason Evans.
“We’re hoping that what we have at this point is where it ends [in terms of casualties],” said Mr Evans.
While the cause of the collapse was not immediately clear, Mr Evans said there was a “strong possibility” that high winds played a role.
Damage and power outages are being reported throughout other areas of Texas, as severe storms blast through the state.
